    Very dependent on what lab you work in

    I have been working at The Institute of Cancer Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture at the ICR is very informal, and if you work for the right person, it could be a good place to work. Annual leave entitlements are generous. The name recognition of the Institute should increase in future, making it a more prestigious place to work.

    Cons

    The leadership is lacking, although this is also dependent on what lab you work in. There's a sense that team leaders can and will say anything they want to, and there seems to be little protection for employees and students again discrimination and bullying, despite the Institute's on-paper commitment to tackling these issues. Of course, the compensation is also poor, with the idea that since you do cancer research you must not need money to live on in London.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the people who do the actual day-to-day work that gets you published. People want to succeed, but if you make it difficult for them with a poisonous atmosphere and little focus on the actual science, they will leave and your funding will be hard to renew.
