ORISE's company culture varies, since it is based on job placement at a variety of sites. The work culture experienced is not reflective of ORISE but of your placement site. In my case, I had a very laidback but professional culture that encouraged creativity, networking, and initiative.

The company culture is very supportive without being overbearing. I believe their focus is helping students and even educators excited about participating in government energy research, since it's not as well known of a career path. They do try and make you feel like you're part of a family, and understand that for many people this is their first experience with working for the government or doing research and are very accommodating of that.
