I have been working at IITRI full-time (Less than a year)
Awesome coworkers, 100% tuition reimbursement, free/easy parking, access to 2 free gyms/yoga classes, the management cares about you as a person, Metra/CTA tax free, Social group, Opportunities to learn, over-all good atmosphere.
Pay isn't great- but that is everywhere.
Advice to Management
Keep it up!
I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IITRI (Chicago, IL).
Hours on the phone with would be direct manager. The I met with him and tox manager when they were in the area. Then I flew to Chicago to meet with all department heads. I was given ample time to ask questions of all of them and spent the full day there. I had a meal out with the Sr, VP/Director the night I arrived in town and lunch with the Director and Dir of Business interview day. Most all of these people have been there for over 25 years and there is a very established culture of people.
