I have been working at Cancer Research Technology

Pros

- opportunity to work on some cutting edge science
- collaborate with leading academics and industry peers
- well equipped labs for the size company
- good people to work with

Cons

- poor opportunites for personal and professional development
- politics
- parts of the buisness can be somewhat isolated

Advice to ManagementAdvice

better delegation to staff
multi-site labs/offices are clearly a challenge to manage, but sometimes there is a lack of cohesion between various sites/parts of the buisness

Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cancer Research Technology full-time

    Pros

    There is still some very interesting science being done at CRT, and for some very few lucky individuals there are also reasonable to good career opportunities.

    Cons

    On the whole the outlook is bleak. The company is moving to an 'alliance model', i.e. funded soley by external partners (the charity no longer supports CRT directly). The effect is that CRT is becoming a CRO for early discovery; couple this with working on risky oncology targets, suscess is far from assured and funding far from secure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Externally: Fight our corner at CRUK and clarify our role in delivering patient benefit
    Internally: Don't talk about personal / career development when you have no chance of delivering this across the board
