    I have been working at American Institutes for Research full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a great reputation, benefits, and work/life balance. Schedules are flexible, and there is an option to telecommute sometimes.

    Cons

    The work is mostly administrative and often hard to come by. The new health innovation sub-division is unorganized and poorly managed. As a result, many project associates and project specialists do not have enough work to stay busy on a consistent basis, breeding unnecessary competition and territorial behavior. The salary is on the low-side as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to junior staff and put more effort into effectively managing large projects.

    Pros

    Great people
    Comfortable lifestyle
    High level of work life balance

    Cons

    Slow paced
    Political office environment
    Low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To attract and retain young talent, it may help to pay more. The benefits are great, the work environment is very pleasant but it is just not a very exciting place to work. It may be the nature of the work itself as education research can be slow and tedious.
