    I have been working at Southern Research Institute full-time (more than 3 years)


    Fantastic benefits and flexible schedule. Current management team is working hard to make SRI a better place to work while ensuring we remain competitive and financially sound.


    Growing pains are always difficult. Many of the existing departments need to be re-structured to meet the current situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is apparent that there is a long-term agenda/plan being developed for the future of SRI, but no specifics have been published. This can result in confusion and rumors. Consider sharing the specific long-term vision for SRI. What do we look like in 5, 10, or 15 years?

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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
