I have been working at International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs full-time (More than 3 years)
Fantastic university environment and very good health, dental and retirement benefits. The mission of the organization is very important and the senior researchers are inspiring experts in their fields.
Career growth and employee satisfaction were not prioritized so employee talents were underutilized. University bureaucratic structure made it difficult to let go of under-performers or promote high-performers.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs.
I interviewed with two staff members -- one mid-level, and the other senior/director level -- and the conversations were very different. First I spoke with the mid-level staff member who provided a detailed explanation of expected roles and responsibilities (which, after reviewing the interview transcript in retrospect, were very misleading) and asking multiple questions about technical competencies; this was more formal and "interview-like". About a week later, I spoke with the Senior Staff member, which was a very pleasant experience, and was essentially a mutual, very comfortable dialogue about thoughts and opinions of specific global health programs. In my opinion, the latter is a true testament to whether or not you will be the right candidate for the job.
