I have been working at Purdue Research Foundation full-time (More than a year)
The Purdue Research Foundation, particularly speaking, the Office of Technology Commercialization is a very pleasant place to work. Everyone in this office is friendly and intelligence making it enjoyable to speak to other co-workers.
The downside to working at the Purdue Research Foundation is that it is a non-profit organization. Thus, the salaries tend to be a little below the average.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Purdue Research Foundation (West Lafayette, IN) in August 2013.
Department managers and a couple of HR employees conducted what is typically considered the general interview process. Asked questions relevant to my past work experience, when I graduated from college, my goals within the organization, my interest/ability to work with others and why I left previous jobs. Nothing unexpected or atypical.
I did not get a chance to propose an offer. When I received the phone call that I was being offered the position, I was told at that time what I would be making.
