Mission: Riverside Research moves science from the laboratory to the field for the benefit of our nation. We build teams of recognized experts to deliver effective, efficient, high-value solutions and services to our sponsors.
Riverside Research is an independent, not-for-profit organization chartered to advance scientific research in the public interest and in support of the United States government.
Our not-for-profit status allows us to be independent, unbiased, and unencumbered by short-term financial objectives. This long-term view also allows us to reinvest our earnings into the continuous development of our technical workforce and an open innovation approach to research.
Our open innovation R&D model encourages both internal and external collaboration to accelerate innovation, advance science, and expand market opportunities. With integrated, secure laboratories in Dayton, OH, Boston, MA, Washington, DC, and New York City, NY, our Open Innovation Center conducts independent and mission-focused research in critical technology areas delivering trusted solutions in Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance, Radar, Electromagnetics, Cyber, Biomedical Engineering, Optics, Plasma, and Radio Frequency Systems.
As a not-for-profit company, Riverside Research doesn't pay dividends to shareholders. Instead, annual profits are re-invested in independent research and development projects, community outreach initiatives, and employee benefits that exceed the industry average. Riverside Research also partners with local college and universities to facilitate workforce development through co-op and internship opportunities.

I have been working at Riverside Research Institute full-time (More than a year)
Greatest work experience I've been exposed to. Wonderful management team has their employee's best interest at heart.
- Superb Pay
- Fantastic Benefits
- Helped me achieve my graduate degree - considerable tuition paid
- Bonuses for hard work and achievements is some of the best recognition one can get.
- Transitioning into a higher paid position with a title to follow may not be achievable to most. Big stress on "may not". I'm just trying to find something relevant to the Cons box, currently this isn't a big deal to me.
Advice to Management
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Riverside Research Institute in January 2015.
Hiring process is extremely slow. HR is can't confirm an interview schedule. It has been rescheduled three times for an 20min interview. Not very professional interview and unsure contract before hiring
