Mission oriented organization and colleagues that are incredibly smart and motivated. A very stimulating place to work. It is competently run, currently tweaking its operational model to adapt to the evolving implementation environment.
Despite the wonderful new office, not many people are there due to flexible remote work policy.1

Some of the professional connections and friends I've made; work that is meaningful and enjoyable when you have the right advocates; work/life balance, though this is largely determined by your supervisor's own style
Lack of process and structure (despite what they say) to important things like pay and promotion which leads to no accountability on the part of leadership and messy, inequitable, arbitrary growth; lack of any kind of incentive program to work hard, which leads to slackers and higher-ups with outrageous salaries sticking around; lack of professional development; lack of robust, accountable, organized HR department (despite the best efforts of some great HR reps); lack of care on the part of leadership to address long-standing problems despite staff begging for action for years; lack of robust, transparent internal communications (it's laughable); harmful power dynamics; lack of management training and standards for managers leading to further inequities; etc.

Interesting mission and global presence
This is a highly toxic and harmful work environment where various forms of abuse and harassment have been allowed to persist for an extended period, including at the highest executive levels. Instances of racism, micro- and macro- aggressions, verbal and emotional abuse, and sexual harassment have gone unchecked or diminished, creating an atmosphere where speaking out against such behavior is met with indifference. Psychological safety is lacking in many teams, making it challenging for employees to express their concerns. Furthermore, it is disconcerting that individuals in executive and senior leadership positions, who have engaged in abusive and harassing conduct towards staff, continue to maintain their roles and are even promoted. This concerning trend is exacerbated by leaders who choose to ignore these issues, prioritizing business objectives and displaying favoritism over addressing the well-being and dignity of their employees. In addition, leaders within the organization often support and enable abusive behaviors among their own team members. This is likely because these leaders themselves lack integrity and serve as poor role models by engaging in abusive and harassing behaviors, further contributing to the toxic atmosphere.8

Lots of employee initiatives and support, talented and interesting people
Some toxicity in various departments and several technical folks with no management training (or interest) who are holding high management positions

Remote work makes good on DEI among staff. An organization that is sincere about changing peoples lives for the better.
Might not have enough room for growth depending on the department.
- 5.0Sep 10, 2023Project DirectorCurrent Employee, more than 8 yearsWashington, DC
Smart and committed people with a strong service ethic and a collaborative team spirit. The commitment to what I call applied science means powerful research and analysis is designed and used to make a positive difference.
It's big and sometimes disjointed, but they are working on that.

Limited opportunities for growth depending on the team
