    I have been working at WestEd full-time

    Pros

    The benefits and pay are competitive. The pension plan is the best I have ever seen. Friendly work environment. Professional and hard-working staff.

    Cons

    It seems to me that most projects and programs have little guidance and support in terms of vision. The Project Managers are too busy actually doing the work to focus on the staff and developing internally. Little to no upward mobility (outside of pay raise promotions).
