I have been working at U.S. Civilian Research full-time (More than 5 years)
Young, smart, dynamic workforce with good benefits - New Management is making important changes.
Bureaucratic, pay is below market, hard to get promoted.
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Civilian Research (Washington, DC) in February 2012.
There are hard-working, dedicated people @ CRDF. But perhaps there's a reason why they're at a non-profit - i.e. that they're hard-working and dedicated but perhaps a bit too disorganized. You need to know your material before interviewing. Be prepared for professional treatment with the occasional off-putting weirder-than-normal people. They don't get back to interviewees for a looong time.
