I have been working at Georgia Tech Research Institute full-time (More than 10 years)
The benefits are great. There is a constant steam of new work to keep things fresh.
There is no shortage of red tape. We are state employees under the University System of Georgia executing work on federal contracts.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute.
I spoke on the phone with several employees and management, then did a 1 hour technical review. I freaked out and interpreted the task wrongly as something far more difficult and only realized it 5 minutes before the interviewer called back. I had a half finished program to answer a far more challenging question than was actually asked of me, but I walked through it with the interviewer and he took the time to walk through it with me and saw that I was at least on the right track, then discussed the actual simpler problem. By a textbook reading, it could be considered a failure, but instead he wanted to evaluate me on the criteria that were meaningful to the job, and I got the offer.
