I worked at RTI International full-time
Wonderful benefits, excellent work-life balance, generally supportive colleagues, work that you can truly believe is aimed at improving the human condition.
Credentialism outweighs skills and results. A recent hire with a graduate degree with little ability to deliver results on projects or clients will outearn a more productive or technically proficient colleague with a lower degree. Professional development and career arcs are about degrees and to a lesser extent results. Not always the most dynamic work environment, with a somewhat staid and subdued work culture. Slow creep of corporatism that comes from the top. Relatively low compensation, but balanced by excellent benefits and work-life balance.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RTI International (Toms River, NJ) in October 2017.
Brief phone interview with HR she went over the job and salary requirements. She asked me about my skills and requested my references. Moving on to the more in depth interview.
