    I have been working at Milken Institute full-time

    Pros

    Despite some of the negative reviews this is a better place to work than it might appear. Proximity to the beach, health-related activities, shopping, etc. cannot be beat. There are a few Centers within the Institute that do work closely aligned to the Institute's mission. There are several opportunities to get involved with their annual events. In general most employees are engaged and the atmosphere is pretty collegial.

    Cons

    Traffic getting to/from Santa Monica is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be higher standards for transparency, accountability and reporting.
