I have been working at TERC full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Very family friendly. Great work-life balance.

Cons

All soft funding so your job is never guaranteed until the next cycle of funding gets awarded, and then you're good for maybe 3 years. You get used to this uncertaintly, though.

Advice to Management

You must come up with a way for junior people to be able to get out form under their own senior level managers to go and work in other work groups. It is too much of a fiefdom.

    I have been working at TERC full-time

    Pros

    Family friendly, interesting work, many good people, good work (i.e. beneficial to education).

    Cons

    Well, it's much like a college or university in all the good an bad ways. Different cultures, and different fiefdoms, even though it's a 100-person entity.

    Advice to Management

    Would be good to have some new blood, and better ways of retaining them.
