The organization depends on federal funding, which is under threat from Congress/administration. It goes through cycles of "good years/bad years" but has recently been stuck in a long, and very bad cycle. As a result, the organization has had to go through layoffs in order to re-allocate funding to projected growth areas...but it's not sustainable.
Typical days at work are busy from the time you walk in, until it's time to go home. Lots of work, not for the lazy!
If you live close by, it's a great commute. Very "family friendly" as a whole, and an overall good experience. Benefits are great, but have been getting chipped away over the past decade.
Benefits, work-life balance
lack of budget guidance, too many competing initiatives
