      Good pay and work life balance; subpar management

      Pros

      Lots of interesting projects going on, junior to mid level employees are all fantastic and bright. Inspiring place to work, and a great resume builder for early career professionals.

      Cons

      Few pathways to promotion or growth for entry level employees meant most junior staff left within a couple years. Managements only goal seems to be minimizing overhead expenditure. Cuts and skimping on “overhead” departments (IT) made work far more difficult for everyone else in the organization. Senior leaderships insistence on splitting certain groups off from the main organization in order to look flashy resulted in barriers to collaboration, and damaging feuds between FHI employees and their (sort of?) coworkers at spin-offs. All issues that could easily be fixed and only affected certain departments, however. Generally would recommend work in many departments.

      Pros

      Depending on which department you work in, your experience at fhi can be great or terrible. Departments are very siloed and department heads/associate directors pretty much create and enforce particular workplace cultures.

      Cons

      See pros, it’s a mixed bag
