I have been working at Children's National Health System full-time (More than a year)
It is hard to feel sorry for yourself working at a children's hospital. This truly is a rewarding place to be. As a research engineer, there is a lot of autonomy to drive your own projects and contributions to projects. You kind of set your own hours in this department, but that sometimes means working a lot. There are lots of benefits, such as matched retirement contributions, group healthcare, and pre-tax commuting options.
There is a lot of bureaucracy, as comes with any large employer. Not too many vacation days.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Children's National Health System (Washington, DC).
Not long, a few phone calls and a half day in person. The original phone calls were with the HR recruiter, who also extended the offer and was in charge of the salary negotiations and start date. She was not helpful at all and I actually had to reach out to the hiring manager directly because she would not respond once I had accepted the offer.
