    I have been working at Henry M. Jackson Foundation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    HJF has an extremely generous and comprehensive benefits package, has a rewarding mission to advance military medicine and health worldwide, and has ongoing training opportunities.

    Cons

    Perhaps largely due to is fairly rapid growth, HJF does have some significant duplication of duties in various departments. This can result in quality that is not uniform company-wide. The ability to advance is quite limited, and does vary significantly, depending on management style of the department vice-president or director.

    Advice to Management

    Recent management training efforts are helping. Try to allow employees to advance, wherever possible.

    Pros

    The benefits are good, the labs are well equipped, there is work schedule flexibility and not much competition. Some of the research topics are definitely interesting.

    Cons

    A lot of office politics, lack of communication, poor management (but there are few exceptions ), salaries frozen, pending budget cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Open the dialogue with the employees, communicate clearly what are the duties and the expectations, discuss openly the job related issues.
