I have been working at Northwestern University full-time
The environment is very good.
Nothing really downside in NU.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) in March 2011.
There are two components of the interview process: various activities completed in group, and a traditional 30 minute interivew. Overall, it is a fun process and the staff tries to make you as comfortable as possible. When I went through my group interview/activities, we collaborated well and I think that made the experience better.
