    I have been working at Ripple Effect full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My favorite thing about Ripple Effect is the "Work Smarter" culture. The Leadership is always looking for better, more efficient ways to get things done. I've worked at a lot of places where higher ups weren't really interested in hearing about areas for improvement or out-of-the box solutions -- not so at Ripple Effect! It's nice to feel supported and encouraged to think innovatively and to challenge the status quo. My colleagues are also fantastic. It's a nice mix of people from different backgrounds but with a shared passion for learning and quality. Ripple Effect offers a lot of flexibility -- TW and flex hours help keep work-life balance.

    Cons

    Contract work can be demanding at times, but that's true of every job, and there are both busy and down times. The work pace is fast, but that also makes the job exciting.

    Research and Evaluation Associate (Mixed Methods) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ripple Effect (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    They were initially very fast and receptive. I applied online and they got responded after 24 hours, quickly scheduled a phone interview, and a Sharepoint database assessment. After the assessment, they told me they would get back to me in a week and I never heard from them again. I thought both the phone interview and assessment went well so I was surprised to not hear from them, but based on other reviews, it sounds like they screen a lot of people and it doesn't go anywhere.
