    I worked at Texas AgriLIFE Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    very interesting research, lots of new things to learn, mostly pleasant staff, flexible hours, excellent policies for sick leave, overtime, and vacation time. Each person in charge of their area was always very professional and capable.

    Cons

    LONG HOURS during certain parts of the season, some programs are serially understaffed, bad office politics on occasion, pay is pretty low relative to local standards, some out of date research methods and low initiative to upgrade equipment, difficulty in communicating/coordinated with agricultural partners. Some hostility and intimidation with the older crowd. There were several incidents with a long-term staff member that went unreported due to fear of backlash.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a better and safer way of addressing inter-office problems, particularly with senior staff who may not be adapting to the needs of their programs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Texas AgriLIFE Research (College Station, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward they first interview through skype and if everything goes well they can ask you for a seminar in person and they basically ask from the slides
