I have been working at Cancer Research UK full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Challenging working environment, highly motivated and dedicated staff who are committed to working for a very good cause. There is also an excellent work life balance. Everyone is very supportive and the working environment is highly collegiate.

Cons

There are not many downsides of the organisation; but if I was pushed I would say that it takes quite a long time to progress in the company. Also, the salary is lower than equivalent jobs in the private sector but that's to be expected.
