    I have been working at George Washington University

    Pros

    The university will cover a large percentage of tuition should you decide to further your education while working at GW

    Cons

    Red tape at every turn. Health benefits are not all that great considering GW has their own health care system.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at George Washington University.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started very quickly and the eDesign Team was very eager to have me interview. During the interview itself I met the whole team and the process felt encouraging. This was a creative position, so they asked me to complete a video project to be completed within a week. I was encouraged to ask questions about the project and did. I sent them a digital version and a link on YouTube, as well as any supporting materials I had.

    Upon delivering the project I received no response, not even a confirmation that my project had been received. I reached out to make sure they had gotten my materials, noticing that the unlisted video on Youtube had several hits, and received no response.

    I found their lack of response after putting a significant amount of time and effort on their project unprofessional.

The school's student-teacher ratio is about 15:1. Its academic programs run the gamut from business to law to medicine. Notable... More
