Used to be a great place to work with engaged management. In the past year that has changed for the worse.
Too many changes way to often. RK has literally opted for the cheapest platforms for contract workers. Not user friendly. As they're asking us to do more w/less they missed payroll 3 weeks in a row!

Worked for RainKing for a couple of months as a Research Intern. Overall the experience was not that bad. Most employees are relatively young in their mid 20's, friendly and approachable, and always willing to lend a hand if you have questions. On my first day, I was introduced to the entire department and had to tell an embarrassing story about myself which was a pretty good icebreaker. I worked with a few supervisors on the Operations team that walked me through the basics of what was needed, but other than that I wasn't micromanaged very much outside of sending reports (emails) letting them know what work was completed. If you like solving problems, are creative, and can work independently it's a pretty good job for $10 dollars an hour. Also - you will never go hungry at this place. It seems like they are always providing lunches and bagels. The dress code is casual to business casual, so it was nice not having to put on a tie and slacks everyday.
The office is not the easiest to access from the metro as there isn't a direct metro stop but it's a 5-10 minute bus ride on the J2 or J3 from the NIH-Medical Center metro stop (they will reimburse metro expenses up to $70/month. If you have a car - they will pay for your parking.)2
