I have been working at Child Trends full-time

Pros

My coworkers at Child Trends are great to work with, and learn from. They care about my professional interests and development. As a junior staff member, I have a lot of say about the projects and tasks I work on.

Cons

In my experience, junior staff tend to stay in the office most of the time rather than interacting with clients and other professionals in the field.

Advice to Management

Rewards (bonuses, promotions, or otherwise) for exceptional work could boost morale when day-to-day work can sometimes become mundane.
