    Former Employee - Lab Specialist in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Huntsman Cancer Institute full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is acceptable, work life balance is great. Your experience will depend greatly on what lab you work in. Most people don't work very long hours here so if you're into that, this is your place. Fantastic benefits.

    Cons

    Promotions are probably hard to come by. I cant imagine that this is among the centers that publish the most. Most people don't work very long hours so if you're looking for an environment where people work a lot and try hard to publish, this is not your place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire PIs that actually work on cancer. Seems like a good percentage of PIs are not focused on cancer.

    Former Employee - Research Assistant in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Huntsman Cancer Institute part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great and the people are wonderful. I had a lot of fun working there and learned a lot!

    Cons

    Parking is expensive and difficult to get but public transit is good enough that you can get there easily without a car. I really don't have anything negative to say about this fine establishment

    Former Employee - Former Employee in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Huntsman Cancer Institute full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best benefits of any place I have ever been. Retirement program is awesome. Pay is hit and miss, depending on where you work. Not overly stressful. (sometimes to relaxed)

    Cons

    Opportunities are limited unless you have a PhD or MD. No real career ladder for most positions. There might be some rare ones that come around, but you must perform well and you must time it just perfect when someone else leaves. When I was there I felt like my career was stagnant even though I did my job well and I got above average raises every year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love Huntsman Cancer Institute. I think it is a great place to work. However, if you have lots of ambition to move up in your career, this place probably isn't for you unless you are a doctor or a PhD. No bonuses like you might get in the corportate world.
