I have been working at EMPA full-time (More than a year)
Flexible working hour
Free of working on independent project
Close to industries
It is not very women freindly. My department had very few women and socially is can be very hard to integrate. the work atmosphere is not very international either. The overall attitude towards international employees is quite cold which can be a problem when it comes to integrating and networking. Being in several european instituions in the past, this has been my first experience in this reagrd.
I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at EMPA (St. Gall (Switzerland)) in December 2016.
Skype interview with shared screen presentation for nearly 30 min followed by Q & A, then i was asked to ask question about the position. After skype interview i was called to EMPA for another interview with head of dept and HR.
