I have been working at DAI full-time
Good growth potential, movement from one department to another, flexible hours, a good degree of work life/balance.
Some manager are just horrible. Not knowledgeable and/or too emotional to work with. It can be found anywhere though, but if looking into working here, try to do your FBI work on who the manager will be. People quit the managers, not the company.
Advice to Management
Allow, with no resentment, for your team to grow and move to other departments. Even if it means you will have more workload while you find a replacement.
I applied online. I interviewed at DAI (Bethesda, MD) in April 2017.
About 3 weeks after I applied I had a 30 minute phone Interview. They primarily asked about my previous experience in communications work, asking specific questions based on my resume. They also asked why I wanted to work for this specific project. Within a few days I was contacted to schedule an in-person interview and writing test. I went to the office and they asked more questions about my previous experiences. Then, the writing test was to synthesize and USAID report.
