IDA is an entirely research based company. If you don't have a PhD, you don't matter. Support staff are treated like second class citizens. The pay is mediocre at best. There is little room for advancement, and the people that do get promoted move up due to race or favoritism and not job performance. The Management staff are ignorant of how to fix issues and generally don't care about their employees. Departments are forced to work understaffed, while managers demand more with less. The only perk of working for this company is that the benefits package is above average. The clearance process is a pain, and until you have it, you are completely expendable.
Good benefits, a lot of Paid Time Off
