"Good until it wasn't..."

StarStarStarStarStar
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

- Extremely smart, hard working people
- Fairly responsive HR
- Lots of opportunity, as long as you're willing to put in the hours

Cons

- Run by scientists, who don't have a single business bone in their body
- Much of senior management does not practice work/life balance and expects staff to feel and work the same way
- Communication is severely lacking and silos abound
- There is almost an unnatural fear of the Board of Governors

Advice to Management

Communicate with your staff; define positions and set expectations upfront. Give people a chance to succeed - expecting a new staff person to be fully ramped up in less than two months is completely unrealistic and unreasonable.

    I have been working at PCORI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am newly employed by PCORI, and even during the interview process I knew this place was filled with pleasant people. The environment is very friendly and vibrant. If you work here, you are surrounded by people who work hard and also make it fun doing so. You can tell everyone genuinely enjoys coming to work -including me. It has only been a couple of weeks for me, but I am highly impressed and very eager to learn more, work with everyone, and building close relationships (professional and personal).

    Cons

    There are no cons, yet.
