    I have been working at EMMES Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)


    The type of experience you have with Emmes will largely depend on the project team you join, so pay attention to the people-skills of the people you interview with. I work on an interesting project, with generally good people, and have learned a great deal. The company ethos is generally to support a healthy work/life balance - but workloads and stress for some positions can be inordinate. The work environment is largely informal (dress code etc.) and can be impersonal (unless you are willing to be outgoing first, and can stomach having your small-talk met occasionally with a blank stare). Base salaries seem average (or slightly below average) for all but the statisticians, but the company's contribution to the retirement fund is very competitive (full vesting takes most full-time employees either 5 or 6 years, so if you leave earlier, you will leave some of that money on the table). Decent opportunities to work remotely 1 day or so a week (if your position and project don't need you physically on site). Company has never used layoffs to balance its books: not after contracts end; not in response to recessions; not in response to government shutdowns. They are truly a great company in this regard, and take a lot of pride in it. If you are intellectually engaged in the work, you will enjoy Emmes. It is an academic environment, but with none of the toxic environment so typical in academic medical centers. There are lots of opportunities for formal and informal training (on site and via teleconferencing: less common to have funds to go to offsite conferences). They have a great tuition reimbursement program if you are working toward a degree that aligns with your current or a potential position at Emmes. Most of the senior people (and all of the statisticians, I think) will respond positively to those who want to learn and grow.


    My best advice is to negotiate the highest initial salary possible when you are first hired, regardless of the role you are being hired into and the role you see yourself aiming for in the future. Have never worked for a company before that seemed to make no connection between the idea of performance and pay -- or worse, performance, pay, and retention. Work hard, make major contributions, be the person that the PI can count on to stay late and get it done, regardless of circumstances? None of that commitment is rewarded with corollary increases in salary. In addition, the company does not understand the importance of job title as part of what an employee expects as part of the reward for good work. Hard working, high performers have the same HR-enforced titles as those who are expert at shirking their way to mediocrity. Beware of the impact this will have on your resume, when you find yourself going nowhere fast in terms of the two main things employees want from their jobs (good pay and titles that ensure their resumes are effective). They have an overinflated sense of how the intangibles (informal environment, telecommuting, commitment to "good work/life balance") compensate for the ridiculously bureaucratic approach they take to pay and titles. In fact, any assessment of their system shows that it approaches employees as a statistical "population," and see no problem in doling out lots of "attaboys" but never thinking those attaboys should be reflected in your pay or title. As a result, they have a lot of complacent people there -- which should be no surprise, since their compensation and promotions structure seems custom-designed to lump everyone into the same groups and give them the same pay. A small percentage find a way to move up within some kind of reasonable timeframe. Others -- for personal reasons, usually -- hang on for decades, doing the same thing, and have reached a decent salary just by virtue of all those tiny annual merit increases finally adding up. But many good people move on after vesting, and Emmes seems happy enough about that. It's a shame, really.

    Advice to Management

    Tie pay to performance, rather than the accumulation of "skills" (i.e., experience) and longevity.
