    I have been working at Center for Army Analysis

    Pros

    Ability to potentially contribute to a cause, good benefits, very good work/life balance. Located near nice areas if you're looking to live close by.

    Cons

    Far too little work to do, management only listens to people who come in with strong military backgrounds (i.e. full career in Army or working with Army), culture based on the cult of personality of the director. Very poor HR work makes for slow processing of recruiting, pay changes, reimbursements, etc., very error prone and errors that hurt you are not corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that in the modern civilian world ability and age do not correspond exactly as the military likes to think they do. Recognize that civilians should not be treated like military personnel since they have the option to leave. Fix HR department and when there are HR errors, make it up to the employee somehow.

      I worked at Center for Army Analysis full-time

      Pros

      Relaxed environment where you can stay away from some of the DC craziness while still contributing. Plenty of opportunity to develop and refine ORSA skills.

      Cons

      Sometimes there's a strong feeling that impartial analysis is secondary to getting the answer big army would want to hear.
