    I have been working at Charles River Analytics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Charles River is a really cool place to work - the research is cutting edge and really interesting, the people are extremely smart, and there is such a broad range of work going on that there are constantly new things to learn about. There's a lot of room for growth, whether its technical skills, business development, or leadership roles.

    It's also a great size - large enough to have a support staff that is fantastic, but small enough that you don't have to deal with huge levels of bureaucracy and red-tape that is common at larger organizations. This also plays well with the personal growth and fast-paced research side of things.

    The benefits are fantastic, with great flexibility, vacation time, health benefits, and many other unique offerings.

    Cons

    Research isn't for everyone, and there can be projects that don't end up with a clear transition or success.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Charles River Analytics (Cambridge, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had one day of two 1 hour interviews in their office. Interviewers were engineers on the team they were hiring for, but they didn't tell me that during the interview. As such, questions were related closely to the project I was going to be assigned. It was pretty much a dialogue about my experience with Unity where they would ask if I was dealt with x or y...
