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

Pros

* work is interesting and challenging
* coworkers are unusually likely to be smart, diligent, and fair
* often open to flexible schedules and alternative work location plans, provided structure and accountability

Cons

- pay sometimes low for the level, volume, and intensity of work
- revenue, and thus job security, varies over time and is largely dependent on vagaries of federal clients' budgets,

    I have been working at RTI International as an intern

    Pros

    -Involvement on several proposals/projects
    -Fast-paced, busy, requires work of intern
    -Interesting research projects
    -Get to attend lots of interesting events

    Cons

    -OFFICE IS EXTREMELY ANTISOCIAL, people do not interact face-to-face and just e-mail from across the office, no one goes to even get lunch together
    -Work comes and goes in waves, many days very busy other days nothing to do
    -Too many interns to allocate tasks to
    -UNPAID

    Advice to Management

    -Pay interns at least a stipend if you're requiring them to work 20+ hours a week
    -Create semester-long projects for interns to fall back on when they don't have work to do
    -Hire only the essential amount, do not hire part-time interns when you have full-time ones that will do everything

    Pros

    Some larger amount of freedom, particularly for more senior researchers, to tailor your job to your interests. Highly collaborative community that encourages strong science

    Cons

    Can be frustratingly academic, and the systems that support government contracting can be overly burdensome. Commercialization is not as strong a focus as publications and other forms of scientific stature.
