I have been working at Child Trends full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A clear, strong mission to improve children's lives through rigorous research.
Strong ethics and values.
Motivated, productive colleagues.
Inter-departmental collaboration, and opportunities to work on a variety of different projects and use a diverse skill set.
Variety day-to-day, and in work content.

Cons

As Child Trends expands and grows satellite sites, tough decisions have to be made about how to allocate and use limited resources to meet increasing needs for space, equipment, staff, etc. Close attention must be paid --and a concerted effort made-- to ensure that satellite offices and employees working remotely feel included, that their requests are being heard, and that their needs are being considered.

Advice to Management

Continue strengthening the process for supporting satellite offices and employees to ensure that their voices are being heard and considered, and that their needs are being met in a timely, adequate fashion.

    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.
