    I have been working at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute full-time

    Pros

    Groundbreaking medical research, not a lot of bureaucracy, nice and down-to-earth personnel. Strong leadership, great vision - but a ways to go.

    Cons

    Everything is dependent on funding. Industry or federal grants fund the entire institute. The grounds are a work in progress -if you're lucky, you work in one of the newer buildings. If not, be prepared to work in a trailer.

    IT Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted within a few business days for a telephone screen with Human Resources. Invitation received via email to fill out an extended application. Contacted within a few business days for an in person interview. Interview lasted approximately 2 hours; 30 minutes with Human Resources. 90 minutes with Hiring Manager.

    Interview with Human Resources was extremely professional and I was provided with extremely thorough information and brochures regarding benefits. Very positive experience with Human Resources.

    Interview with Hiring Manager was less professional and awkward. Several role play scenarios that seemed to all be centered around conflict resolution. An employee reported that they saw your staff falsify a time card. How do you handle? You smell alcohol on your staff members breath. How do you handle? Another employee says that your employee made a mistake and they never want them to be helped by them again. How do you handle?

    Facilities are extremely dilapidated and run down. Exposed cabling and electrical in hallways, no ceiling and floor tiles in a lot of places. Rusty machinery laying around common areas outside. Some areas roped off with caution tape where decks or stairs are breaking down.
