I have been working at Child Trends full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Child Trends is grounded in its mission - Research to improve children's lives - and all staff share this common goal. The work we do is interesting, and management is supportive of tailoring our work to our interests.

Cons

Writing proposals for new work is an important but disruptive (to current work) activity. Child Trends is still working to make this process less stressful.

Advice to Management

Strive to hire more ethnic/culturally diverse personnel so we can better represent the demographics we research.

    I have been working at Child Trends full-time

    Pros

    Truly collaborative work environment; Supportive colleagues range from friendly peers to senior level mentors; Commitment to high-quality research that can be immediately applied in and disseminated to the real world

    Cons

    Variation in experiences of staff in different program areas; in other words, depending on a person's program area, he or she might have a very different experience in their workload, expectations from managers, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your practice of soliciting feedback from all levels of staff -- everyone in this organization has valuable lessons and/or suggestions to share.
