    I have been working at Southern Research Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Updating facilities across all locations. Investing in new leadership rather than continuing to rely on past personnel. Increased collaboration with external organizations continues to improve market position.

    Cons

    Many 'long-time' employees do not like necessary changes in organizational culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in new ideas, facilities and personnel. The best years of Southern Research are still to come.

    Process Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Southern Research Institute.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online followed by a hour long phone interview which included HR related questions as well as my background etc. Was called on site for an in person interview. Was asked to present on my past experience, 1 hr long ppt with the entire team followed by 1-1 interviews with the entire team. Was a full day process. Has several follow up phone calls by HR about availability and such. Looked like they were ready to present an offer and then radio silence. I emailed to follow up and no reply and so had to call after a couple weeks to check. The HR seemed surprised that no one had informed me about their decision that they had decided to go ahead with a local candidate and apologized.
    Overall it was a good experience. Quite professional and the engineers seemed very sharp
