  • Great benefits and work/life balance; lack of mobility

    I worked at U.S. Civilian Research full-time

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities for early career professionals specializing in biosecurity, research grant management and science diplomacy. Great benefits and flexible work schedule. Salaries are lower than other large government contractors but higher than many non profits in DC. Overall, a very comfortable place to work both for young professionals and individuals with families.

    Cons

    High turnaround; older senior management slow to change; low mobility

    Advice to Management

    Program diversification and more opportunities for mid level staff.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Civilian Research (Washington, DC) in February 2012.

    Interview

    There are hard-working, dedicated people @ CRDF. But perhaps there's a reason why they're at a non-profit - i.e. that they're hard-working and dedicated but perhaps a bit too disorganized. You need to know your material before interviewing. Be prepared for professional treatment with the occasional off-putting weirder-than-normal people. They don't get back to interviewees for a looong time.
