    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Scientific Systems Company full-time (More than 5 years)


    SSCI is the kindest company that I have ever worked for. They supported me through a house fire, cataract surgery, gall bladder surgery, kidney stones, and a Charles River flood. They taught me how to write proposals. They allowed me to exercise my imagination unbridled. They afforded me the opportunity to be a principal investigator for some of the most advanced technical problems that I could imagine.


    SSCI is a small company whose research division relies primarily on Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants. Unfortunately The dollar amount of the awards was practically doubled while the Federal SBIR budget stayed the same. The result was fewer awards and increased competition. With the reduction in the number of grant awarded, SSCI also had to reduce its research staff.

    Advice to Management

    Seek partnerships with similar companies to collaborate on proposals and projects, and to expand the pool of technical skills without hiring more people.

    Senior Research Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Woburn, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Scientific Systems Company (Woburn, MA) in July 2010.


    Hiring is meticulous and consequently slow. References are interviewed for their impressions of the candidate. Candidates are asked to submit samples of their writing and are required to make a presentation to the company's subject matter experts and management. Referrals from current employees are a big plus.

    Interview Questions

    • When enumerating the features to be extracted from a 3-D surface scan of composite material for anomaly detection, Curvature alone was mentioned instead of Mean and Gaussian Curvature. I was asked why didn't mention the Mean and Gaussian Curvatures.   1 Answer


    It was cordial and my counter-offer was accepted.
