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


    So many opportunities to learn new things in new areas. A really great place to expand your knowledge base to prepare yourself for the future.


    Really hard to make significant career moves forward. Lots of promises made with few deliveries. Lots of times, hires are made instead of promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Management is taking things in the right direction, it will just take time.

    Average Interview


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


    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
