    I have been working at Fraunhofer Gesellschaft full-time

    Pros

    The technical work being conducted is top-notch and very important for a sustainable future. The technical challenges and quality of research personnel are outstanding and offer a rare career opportunity to grow and develop.

    Cons

    The hours are long but the dedication, high level of comraderie and stong sense of 'team spirit' make this a very satisfying place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for working tirelessly to make our Center both a great place to work and where important technology is developed.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fraunhofer Gesellschaft (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    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.
