    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Co-workers, work environment, campus, benefits

    Cons

    Senior management, constant re-organization, unclear direction

    Advice to Management

    Take the employees into decision making processes. Often things are changed without finding out if it is a viable change for the work. Incentivize. Boost morale instead of shooting it down.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at American Type Culture Collection in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was then contacted a few days later for a phone screening with HR. About a week after this I did a phone screening with the scientist who would be the supervisor for the position, and about a week later a two hour Skype interview with HR, the supervisor, and a few other people.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard HR questions about working with people, strengths, weaknesses, etc. The phone screening with the scientist focused on technical aspects of the position.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not feel their offer was commensurate with my experience or especially with the cost of living in Northern Virginia. They were unwilling to negotiate salary or relocation assistance. The negative employee reviews across multiple job-search sites were also concerning.
