    I worked at University Corporation for Atmospheric Research full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    15 years - most were very good. Science/honest environment, good benefits and really nice, smart people.

    Cons

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (Boulder, CO) in February 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly don't remember a difficult or unexpected question. They felt standard and simply looking for more data on executive level experiences and handling stress.   Answer Question
