    Wonderful people and great flexibility, but isolating if working alone

    I worked at National Marrow Donor Program as an intern (more than a year)


    Work in the bioinformatics research department is mostly self-directed but focused towards research grant goals. Great deal of flexibility in chosen tasks, and becoming the "expert" in an area is just a matter of pointing your own learning in that direction. Working from home is easy and even encouraged, especially when working on writing manuscripts and other individual tasks. Small department means everyone knows everyone, and at least a few times a month everyone is invited to "Conference Room V" (the Village Pub) after work for happy hour.


    The rest of the company does not understand what our department does, despite its critical role. Kind of the "other" group in the company. Within the department, there are clear "islands of knowledge" and it's hard to bond with others outside of your team. Work is often individual and can be isolating at time. You'll need to ask for raises and promotions and keep an eye on your market value AND your unique value to the team, as long-term interns are not freely offered raises. However, if you make yourself needed and irreplaceable, they will compensate you appropriately.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at National Marrow Donor Program in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    very seamless and friendly HR staff. Applied for position and the following week received a phone interview. The week after a face-to-face interview, and about 2 weeks after that I received an offer. Interview took around 30min.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't remember specific questions but they interview using a set of behavioral questions such as "tell me a time when you...". you need to have examples for when you were proactive and when you worked well if other, and when you had a conflict but fixed it. The questions are off general HR hiring form. I think they must ask all candidates the same questions regardless of field - they were sort of generic.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They offered me more than what I expected so I said yes early, but general rule... go up 10%.
