Featured Review

Current Employee - Research Assistant

I have been working at MDRC full-time

Pros

Interesting projects, smart coworkers, managers are generally understanding, nice and flexible.

Cons

Slow periods and very intense periods, no real way to predict. Can be easy for research assistants to get stuck doing more boring administrative work for indefinite periods, but it is possible to... advocate for yourself and request other types of work.

Advice to Management

Just keep in mind that working from home for many people can be a big challenge. Even when going through busy periods of projects, keep that in mind. In the absence of an office, providing feedback... is more important now, it can be easy for research assistants to not have a sense of how they are doing in an all remote context.

Former Employee - Campaigns

I worked at DoSomething.org full-time

Pros

Lower-mid level staff are great to work with

Cons

Leadership lacks cultural competency. Say that they are mission driven but are really drive by corporate sponsors.
