    I have been working at ECRI Institute full-time (More than a year)


    This is the company I see myself staying with long term. Our new CEO is bringing a lot of positive changes and taking ECRI where it should be within the healthcare industry. The environment is very welcoming and they are really working on a lot of activities to bring employees together (I.e company picnics, community volunteering, etc). We have education workshops on site and tuition reimbursement. In my department, the managers are great and very helpful. It's a great team and culture. The all-hands meetings are great because we get to hear about where ECRI is headed in the field. It's also a plus to be able to go outside and walk the new trails around the institute. I think the best part is that I feel appreciated and respected at work.

    Lastly, we have great PTO and Healthcare.


    The only Con I could really think of is the lack of windows. It would be great to have some sunlight in the building but I understand that isn't a small task.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. This is exactly how you retain employees and keep morale up! The happier the employees, the better work and effort is put into their job.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ECRI Institute (Plymouth Meeting, PA) in September 2013.


    Contacted by HR by phone and email. Scheduling was fine. Has an initial phone interview, and was called for in person interview. In person lasted about 2 hours with various people. Person that seemed to ask most relevant questions was the HR rep. It was rather strange as some of those discussions I was expecting from the hiring manager. IT director was busy to do an interview even though he was scheduled.
