Excellent non-profit research company focusing on "fueling discovery", great work environment, and extremely talented employees.
Project Manager, Operations (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 19, 2013
A typical day includes managing multiple projects through the Production pipeline, coordinating with resource managers to schedule core services, and interacting across departments to accomplish aggressive deadlines. I've learned a lot over the years but the one comment made by my boss that has stood out over the years is: "communication is all in the delivery". The hardest part about the job can be resolving conflicts between differing opinions in each department to accomplish a set goal, but in the end, respect and collaboration will get to the desired results. And, the most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the people and having a great boss, without these two elements the motivation can be lacking.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
holiday parties are usually just for staff and don't include family or significant other.
