I have been working at PNAS full-time (More than 5 years)
Benefits were OK. Good location(s). The organization as a whole has great notoriety and a positive influence in other employers and academic institutions.
Stuffy work environment. Tedious, repetitive work. Not enough opportunity for advancement. Status quo always dominated any discussions of innovation.
Advice to Management
There has to be a way to make the content produced much more modern and palatable. The workplace culture actually reflected the drab, banal content. It's science! It's modern and ever-changing! Take advantage!
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PNAS.
I applied online and received an email questionnaire/screening a week later. The screening was pretty straightforward, and I was offered an in-person interview one day after sending it in. I was then contacted by a recruiter from HR to fill out another application (education, employment history, computer skills, etc) and to send in reference information. While the email screening was very general questions, the in-person interview was more about my specific background and skills, and they asked questions based on the details from my cover letter. From then, it was about two weeks before I was offered the position.
