Pros

Friendly environment, really laid back. Benefits are good compared to other places especially, time off policy

Cons

Really bad management. Company could be doing a lot better financially wise if it wasn't for the mismanagement. Salaries are at least 15% to 20% lower compare to the private sector. Since the company is a non-profit organization and most of the work is government contracts, there is a lot of fluctuation in the amount of work. Not a very stable company to work with.

Advice to Management

There really is a lack of leadership and poor management at IITRI.

    I worked at IITRI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Niche market, diverse scientific expertise, lots of teachers within the tenured team, good regulatory history, free education opportunities

    Cons

    This is a small, old, non-profit with established ways, policies and culture that provide for a very dysfunctional business and working environment by any current day standards. They consistently fail to meet reasonable expectations for good customer service and they consistently fail to adequately support the front line people bringing new people and business to the door. Change is so very needed in the culture internally from top down.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! This is a really cool organization with really sellable niche expertise and some really talented people.
