    I worked at Guttmacher Institute (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredible staff, great benefits and good salaries, interesting and challenging work, supportive environment, travel opportunities, language courses offered as well as yoga and interval training

    Cons

    Because staff tends not to leave the institute, there is not a lot of room for growth. Everyone is overworked.

    I worked at Guttmacher Institute full-time

    Pros

    Guttmacher is the gold standard--I spent the first few years of my career there and am very grateful to have had that experience and connections. The people who work there are the brightest in the business.

    Cons

    Guttmacher has grown so much in the last few years. They've had to work to find their new identity as a larger organization. I believe that any growing pains happening while I was there have been targeted--and I hope resolved!

    Very nice and humanistic place of employment

    Be more conscious that there is a 'glass ceiling' which forces talented and deserving people to move on.

    Pros

    Guttmacher is full of bright, dedicated people who also respect each other and the idea of work-life balance. It was a great place to grow and learn as an employee.

    Cons

    As it is an academic-style organization, there are limitations on your progress to certain levels without the appropriate advanced degree.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a little bit more flexibility in the ability to substitute experience for advanced degrees. Junior staff who would otherwise love to grow with the company are unable to do so.
