- I am a college student who works at Fraunhofer part time during the school year and full time during the summer. They are great at working with my busy school schedule. They know that being successful in my classes is more important than working during the fall and spring semesters. That is very nice because it gives me the ability to work less on a week where I might have stressful exams or something along those lines. - The research they do is very interesting. - For the most part, the people are very friendly.
- I'm American, and the vast majority of people who work with me are from Germany (I work at one of the USA centers). That honestly is not a con for me, as I like all of them and enjoy learning more about what life is like in Germany, but it might be a con for some people. - Pay could be slightly better, but it's not bad
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fraunhofer Gesellschaft (New York, NY) in May 2015.
After the standard introduction , the interview developed into an open discussion. I.e. where is the market going, how would my expertise help to leverage these future trends. The interviewers showed a sincere interest and appreciation for the applicant which is not always a given.
