I have been working at American Institutes for Research full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, multitude of topical areas and expertise, casual dress code, terrific HR team, great on-boarding experience, positive experience with direct manager, interactive wellness and activity programs. Overall positive experience but not a long-term career place for me personally.

Cons

Mediocre pay, little to no recognition for going above and beyond (in hours, workload, or effort). Little support for transitioning out of your level or to another program or position. Too much focus on PhD work and little valuation for experience earned. Often too specialized to allow for generalists in certain fields.

Advice to Management

Listen to your lower-level staff to get a pulse on staff morale. Tap into the solid talent which exists at every level of the company.

    I worked at American Institutes for Research as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management made an effort to welcome the interns. The location on K Street makes commuting easier since it's close to a few Metro stops. I was given a lot of autonomy on my assignment working with a client.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a culture of gossip among the workers, upper management is not well-respected among junior-level workers.
