    I have been working at The Energy and Resources Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Plenty of knowledge bank

    - Hands on experience in field (not just desk research)
    - Willingness to learn more is the limit, resources here never runout

    Cons

    - Inter-division work is very difficult (u can't simply work in other area of ur interest)
    - Improper appraisal system
    - Compensation is lower than industry standards

    Advice to Management

    - Improve compensation
    - Make appraisal tangible (worthless and top employees are hardly differentiated)
    - Make inter division work happen (not just on paper, in real)
