Mission: IDA exists to promote national security, preserve the public welfare, and advance scientific learning by analyzing, evaluating, and reporting on matters of interest to the United States Government.
I worked at Institute for Defense Analyses (Less than a year)
A lot of autonomy, visibility to senior leadership
Only intern in the division, somewhat boring at times
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Institute for Defense Analyses (Alexandria, VA) in June 2016.
I applied for the job online. Got an interview call the same day that the online posting officially closed. The interview was almost a month later, but that was mostly due to my availability, which they were super accommodating about. Interview was very academic in nature - one on one meetings with director & all research staff in the division. Then I presented a one-hour research seminar which was very well attended, lots of good technical questions. Atmosphere was very friendly, conversational & easygoing.
