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

Pros

Flexible working time
Small-sized office room with no more than three persons, giving a very good working privacy.
Free coffee, soda and orange juice give extra score of the working environment.

Cons

Part of the work is related to research and therefore, sometimes yields to no practical results.
My manager is too busy to talk with me.

    I have been working at American Institutes for Research full-time

    Pros

    Some perks are nice - free coffee, bagels on Wednesdays. The company gives lip-service to work/life balance and the mission is a good one.

    Cons

    Don't make this your first job. You'll be stuck and stale a few years later. AIR works its junior staff very hard, but offers very few opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    After the employee engagement surveys of the past few years, some additional attention seems to have been paid to research assistants and associates. Make sure the senior technical staff and management internalize the importance of these staff.
