    Pros

    Working at CDC offers many learning and career growth opportunities. It has been very different from my previous positions in the private sector because you are encouraged very quickly to grow in your position and prepare for the next level in your CDC career by taking FULL responsibility for your career path. The organization's efforts to encourage work-life balance is also a plus.

    Cons

    PhDs move up the ladder faster than others.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CDC.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a potential supervisor. It took 30 minutes. The interviewer said there will be an on-site interview with 1 or 2 people. Most questions were easy to expect. Half of the interview was about prior experiences and skills regarding the work. The last half was about behavioral questions.
