I have been working at RAND full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The system of matrix management and the internal labor market allow for very flexible and interesting opportunities, while helping to ensure that people try hard to work well together. If you're over worked, it's easy to "share your load" since everyone needs to take on work to get paid.

Cons

There is a dark side to the "internal labor market." it can be stressful ensuring that you always have just the right amount of project work on your plate.

Advice to Management

You do a great job communicating where the company is and where it is likely to be next year. I'd like to hear more about what we need to position the company for even more success 5-10 years down the road. In other words, what do we need to do in order to get a huge pat on the back or a "wow" from the rest of the country for our 75th anniversary?

    I have been working at RAND (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. A good amount of PTO that nobody is going to guilt you into not using.

    Cons

    The internal labor market can create a lot of stress if you're having trouble finding projects.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive about helping people find work, especially new employees, instead of just throwing people out there to sink or swim.
