    Research Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alnylam (Cambridge, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Roughly two hours spent speaking with group leader and two laboratory PIs. Group leader used profanity within the first two minutes of the interview. PIs were very practical and generally informative, though they did seem quite reserved or less than positive when asked about their satisfaction with the company. In addition, none of the interview panel were interested in providing much information about the role outside of the absolute basics.
