    I worked at Naval Postgraduate School full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Seeing cutting edge research along with educating future military leaders. Some ideas and techniques are later seen in industry through vendor products. Very good amount of vacation time after a number of years of employment. Good health care.

    Cons

    Research projects depend on budget allocations every year along with government budget cuts. Available classes can depend on student preferences rather than leaders defining what is need, such as basic engineering education. There can be too much gossip and politics that make mountains out of bumps. One's job outlook can change as soon as management changes, such as a change in department chairman.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Naval Postgraduate School (Monterey, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There is a presentation to peers and supervisor required on a topic of my choice and its application to current computer science engineering. Relevancy, succinctness, conclusions and challenge questions were the assessment criteria.
