    Great mission and public impact, not the best for career growth.

    I have been working at NSF International full-time


    The company has a great mission and rewarding public impact. The amount of paid-time off is nice and there are many enjoyable people to work with.


    There are a lot of managers and not enough people doing the actual work. People are often expected to meet deadlines and heavy workloads without adequate staffing and space. NSF is also quick to give up on programs that are not making enough money. It's supposed to be a not-for-profit company but profits and growth are seemingly very important to the senior management. In the laboratory area, there is limited opportunity for career growth. Promotions can be quite difficult to obtain even after sending years earning them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the people at the bottom of the ladder. Note the differences between the business and laboratory sides of the company (for instance, lower pay and higher workload in the labs). Growth can compromise quality!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NSF International.

    Interview Details

    Began with a phone interview from HR. Very basic, asked why I wanted to work at NSF and what I knew about the company. This was followed by an on-site interview where I was interviewed by 6 employees. This was a mix between management and potential peers. The entire process was not overly intense. Expect your basic interview questions.
