    I worked at Human Resources Research Organization full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative, nice, and smart coworkers/management; excellent retirement match and leave policy, nice location, everyone has an office instead of cubicles, free parking, good support for professional conferences. Managed by leading researchers who are recognized experts and have written books on how to apply sound research to practical issues. They seem to have made efforts to expand their business and capabilities in recent years. They strive to be on the cutting edge in assessments and statistics, and are strong in education research. The managers aimed to try to give work assignments that might balance using someone's expertise while helping them to develop capabilities.

    Cons

    At times workload was uneven (too high or not enough) which can happen with contract work in general. Pay did not seem to take into account locality or recognize the value of having a security clearance. At the time there seemed to be limited advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Try to recognize hard working employees or show appreciation for contributions in other ways throughout the year to help improve morale during stressful time periods if promotions are not feasible in the career structure. I heard that this improved in recent years.
