    I have been working at RAND as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    RAND has a phenomenal history as a research organization. Even non-research staff are welcomed at research presentations to hear the latest. Santa Monica is a great location and the office is only a block from the beach. Generally, hours are flexible. Most staff are highly intelligent and well educated. The organization encourages long term employees and flexible work arrangements.

    Cons

    Recent re-organization and new managers have introduced some serious problems with morale, productivity, and solution delivery in the IS area. Although one welcome departure occurred recently, many problems continue due to poor middle managers, the uncertainty of interim management, and anticipation of yet another round of new upper management. These are further eroding staff job satisfaction and loyalty. Focus has clearly shifted from "let's get this done well" to "be sure to cover your a".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The IT organization needs to be re-designed to better align with internal client needs. IT does not run the show--they should function as a support organization that serves overall business needs based on a long term view rather than a 'little as possible' consulting mentality.
