    I worked at US Institute of Peace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone in the building cares deeply about addressing violent conflict, and many are deeply knowledgeable in their craft. In terms of people to work with, it is a fantastic organization. (And, frankly, it is a fantastic location to work. Marble floors, curving walls, and a great view of the Washington Mall.)

    Cons

    Despite periodic strategic reorganizations, teams regularly seem to spar against one-another and do not collaborate well. Plus, for early career professionals, there is a limit to how high you can climb within the organization. With some exceptions, people can climb to "Specialist" level, but will need to leave and come back to join the ranks of "Program Officers"

    Advice to Management

    Encourage collaboration - and make it easier for people to pay for things and administer their finances!
