    I have been working at ECRI Institute full-time (More than a year)


    I have been with ECRI for over 2 years now. Pros: working for a nonprofit, the ability to help hospitals and other orgs in the healthcare industry, kind and understanding managers, work from home days, good healthcare and PTO, a new CEO with forward-thinking ideas, fun activities during the holidays.


    Cons: I wish that the analysts received a bit of a higher salary. If this were the case, I'd definitely be motivated to stay for good!

    Advice to Management

    I would consider paying current analysts more, instead of hiring more people with lower salaries.
