    "Great place to develop a career"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Many career development opportunities

    -Fun, young, vibrant culture

    -Engaging and intellectually challenging work

    Cons

    -Limited recognition and support from some managers--think this is part of the culture; because managers are never thanked for their hard work no one else is. This is what I find to be most frustrating about ABC after working here for many years.

    -Low pay, limited flexibility to increase salary and bonus pool

    -Heavy work load with little upside (i.e. you rarely get a pat on the back or monetary reward)

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees for their hard work, reward managers who create a positive team environment

    Former Employee - Associate Director in Washington, DC
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Solid leadership, great team atmosphere, loyal clients, intelligent and driven colleagues, research focused on next generation, frontline issues, good performance based incentives

    Cons

    Up or out mentality that is part of most "meritorcracies", can be clubby at senior levels, not as in touch with what competitors are providing as they could be.

    Advice to Management

    Look for lateral hires that can bring "best practices" in from their previous employer rather than focus on homegrown talent that "drinks the KoolAid."
