I worked at Houston Advanced Research Center as an intern (Less than a year)
Friendly and intelligent coworkers. Great work environment overall. Monthly company wide breakfast. Great overall company doing work that will change the world.
Office is located at the Lone Star College in The Woodlands, which is not exactly close to nearby job sites. Non profit organization so compensation is not too great, though it is still competitive.
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Houston Advanced Research Center (The Woodlands, TX) in May 2011.
Job posting was available on the company website. A resume and brief cover letter was emailed to HR, and within two weeks a phone interview was set up with the individuals who would be supervising, followed by an in office interview two weeks later. The job was officially offered the following week.
