I worked at Howard Hughes Medical Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The science is still top notch. If you are not in management, the work life balance seems to be ok.

Cons

Benefits and pay are now only average. Upper management micromanages way too much. There is no trust. Morale is at an all time low since I began working there. Too corporate for a non-profit.

Advice to Management

Stop micro managing. Work on improving employee morale at the administration level.

    I have been working at Howard Hughes Medical Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Institute still commands respect as prestigious scientific research organization. COO bringing basic business management practices to running non profit and attempting to build some cohesiveness to the scientific and non-scientific communities.

    Cons

    Horizontal organization. Limited to no transparency regarding merit increases or promotions. HR has done a poor job of monitoring compliance with stated policies and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your understanding and monitoring of what drives the success of the business model.
