    I have been working at Physical Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I learned so much in my year and a half at PSI, mostly because the job involved wearing a lot of hats and being very self-motivated. The compensation and benefits made the long hours worth it. I learned to manage a budget, manage a schedule, manage a team, and juggle multiple projects with competing deadlines. After my postdoc it was a nice change to transparency into the financials of the company and how the grant writing process works. I like absolutely everybody at the company, they're all very brilliant and fun to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    With such fast-paced schedules it can be difficult to get the time you need to really do the tasks right. Also, as with most companies with an engineering and physics emphasis, there are not a lot of women, so there was not a lot of understanding when it came to being a new mother. Opportunities are hot and cold, learn to diversify or else risk losing everything.

    Advice to Management

    Try to give management time to support and mentor junior employees more.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Physical Sciences (Andover, MA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Initial interview was a phone call with two members of the team that eventually hired me, they asked very technical questions. Final interview was an entire day on-site with an hour-long research seminar.
