The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) is a scientific nonprofit organization that sets standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements manufactured, distributed and consumed worldwide. USP’s drug standards are enforceable in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration, and these standards are used in more than 140 countries.
Since its founding in 1820, USP has helped secure the quality of the American drug supply. Building on that legacy, USP today works with scientists, practitioners, and regulators of many nations to develop and revise standards that help protect public health worldwide.
To improve global health through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety, and benefit of medicines and foods.
USP envisions a world in which all have access to high quality, safe, and beneficial medicines and foods. USP approaches this vision with a sense of urgency and purpose, strengthened by its cadre of dedicated expert volunteers, members, and staff, and by working collaboratively with key stakeholders across the globe.
USP employees, volunteers, and representatives work to promote our Core Values in all we do. These values guide our decision making and interactions with internal and external partners:

Advice to Management
Stay the course. Good things don't come easily
I applied online. I interviewed at The United States Pharmacopeia (Rockville, MD).
Phone interview with hiring manager - easy, go over resume and professional background
On site interviews with hiring manager and 2 others from the team; case presentation - All pretty easy and straightforward
Everyone was very cordial and helpful ; what made my opinion change from a positive one to a thumbs down was that I did not hear from them for over a month after the interview and then got an email telling me that I had not been selected for (drum roll) a position other than the one i had applied and interviewed for. I replied and pointed this out, and am yet to receive a response.
