    I have been working at J Craig Venter Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great scientists doing a lot of good work. Collaborative atmosphere and many opportunities to get involved in new fields of genomic research. Huge base of knowledge among colleagues, and great bioinformatics infrastructure.

    Cons

    JCVI is in a period of flux with people coming and going constantly. While many senior scientists have left, it creates many new opportunities. Hopefully it will settle down soon.

    Advice to Management

    Stability is a boon to scientists.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at J Craig Venter Institute (Rockville, MD) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and cover letter online at company's website. After a couple weeks (during which Christmas and New Year occurred) Hiring manager emailed to schedule a phone interview. We settled on a mutually convenient time at which hiring manager called and asked questions.
