    Current Employee - Research Scientist II in Columbia, MD

    I have been working at USRA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everything is dependent on your supervisor's opinion and funding situation, including title, salary, promotion, training, conference... Staffs are very amenable and high-efficient on processing request.

    Cons

    The vacation/sick days are significantly less than university compares.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at USRA in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had already done a fellowship with them and they already knew me so the interview was straight forward. I would recommend doing an internship or fellowship with them and then your work speaks for you.
