Most dysfunctional workplace I've had the misfortune to encounter
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – July 31, 2018
PCORI's mission is a good one but the organization is so dysfunctional and the leadership so petty and incompetent that any satisfaction you might experience from the mission is rendered moot. In fact, the only thing that leadership is expert at is making the wrong decisions. Fraud, waste, and abuse are rampant and senior leadership routinely targets employees they dislike...which has lead to multiple lawsuits (I know of at least 5) for discrimation and a hostile work environment.
As much as I hate to say it, the culture at PCORI is poisonous and you never know who to trust because leadership turns on their employees without warning.
My advice: run from this place.
Poisonous culture, horrible leadership, caustic environment.
