I worked at MDRC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Really great people, an explicit support of work-life balance, good benefits. This is a solid company that is growing and not going anywhere anytime soon.

Cons

There is an uneven distribution of opportunities for growth - especially for generalist research assistants. Like many companies, the power structure is top-heavy with a lot of white men sitting there.

Advice to Management

Diversify those in power. Consider a less hierarchical power structure.

    I worked at MDRC as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, academically oriented staff. Management always provided training sessions for staff, update meetings, and work discussions.

    Cons

    The company is so well organized that it is difficult to find areas to criticize. The company has been making very good progress in implementing cutting edge project management practices.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
