    I have been working at Pew Charitable Trusts full-time

    Pros

    great benefits, smart people, highly respectable programmatic work.

    Cons

    Rigid, bureacratic, demotivating environment. Culture of micro-management.

    Advice to Management

    invest in creating an open, communicative workplace; demonstrate concern for staff (which is win-win for both employer and employee); teach mid-level managers the difference between management and leadership.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Good location in the city, very friendly work environment, good work-life balance for non-managers, easy to get time off

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company if you start out in a low position. Some departments are in a state of transition which makes work hard when you have no idea what is going on. Very bureaucratic and hard to get anything done. Big disconnect with senior managers and regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone to do something, actually let him/her do it. Stop hiring over-qualified candidates for positions because they will become dissatisfied quicker and will not be able to move up into better positions.
