    I have been working at USRA full-time (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.

    - Misunderstanding between HR and the project leaders during the interview process.

    - Lack of communication within the interview group.

    • No difficult questions, but not consistent with the job description!   Answer Question

    No room for negotiation. Most promises during the interview were not honored afterward. My advice would be: keep looking for other jobs.
