    I worked at Society for Neuroscience full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really good dedicated employees working at various department, especially the procurement team. The Sr. Procurement manager is the most associative, supportive and strong team player I know. He knows a lot about contracts and contract management. He is a great mentor, has an open door policy and he rocks like Elvis working hard.

    Great benefits

    Cons

    New managers need lots of training some get emotional about their jobs.
    Micro-management is high
    Job security not guaranteed
    Salaries not competitive

    Advice to Management

    Invest on staff and increase diversity at all management levels.
    SfN delivers well to it members at various venues.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Society for Neuroscience.

    Interview

    Went through a temp agency, so I did not have to interview. The company hires a lot of temps to fill positions. I was placed quickly, so I didn't have to interview face to face.
