    I worked at Arizona State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was based in Washington, DC working at the McCain Institute, part of Arizona State University. When I worked at the Institute, I had the opportunity to work closely with top leaders from various careers. Most of the senior management are accessible and eager to train junior staff. Depending on which team you are on, you have a lot of room for autonomy and encouraged to take on large projects as an opportunity for growth. Despite some of the shortcomings, I found my experience to be incredibly valuable. The relationships and opportunities I was afforded were incredible, and would recommend the team I worked with specifically.

    Cons

    Institute senior management/leadership from the top needs improvement. There is a lack of a clear, unified vision due to poor communication and lack of transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with team more frequently and clearly. Clearly define goals and objectives for all staff for buy in. I highly recommend senior leadership remain laser focused on transparency.
