I worked at University Corporation for Atmospheric Research full-time (More than 10 years)
15 years - most were very good. Science/honest environment, good benefits and really nice, smart people.
Transition in upper management over the past few years has been difficult and has disrupted the stable, creative environment to some extent. I feel sure that UCAR will get it's feet back on the ground and get better focus again.
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (Boulder, CO) in February 2017.
A one-way video interview (answering questions that were pre-programmed and then recorded) and in person. Randy, their Talent Acquisition Manager, was fabulous. The roundtable interview with the team was enjoyable, yet formal. They inserted moments of humor.
While I ended up not accepting the offer, as I was waiting on resolution on a more senior position, I cannot say enough positive things about the entire team. Meeting one-on-one with the President was a joy and quite insightful regarding his enthusiasm and commitment to advancing the organization.
