    I worked at MacArthur Foundation as a contractor

    Pros

    Health benefits and some of the people, but that's about it.

    Cons

    Lower than market pay for the newer staff and no upward mobility unless someone leaves, and a position opens up.

    Not open door policy, upper management has 95% of the say in key decisions.

    If you've worked here for many years, the retirement benefits are really good, however, you have to be here for 15 years to realize that benefit.

    Try to save money by hiring seasonal temporary workers, but do not communicate a clear idea of the term they will be on-boarded for.

    I worked at MacArthur Foundation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They people at the Foundation are outstanding and always willing to work with you, assist you and open to discuss your thoughts on a situation.

    Cons

    As long as all deadlines are meet, great. Miss one - OOPS. The senior staff are always watching.
