Pros

Little stress, friendly and open-minded people, good lab funding

    Pros

    A staff member has the opportunity to work on multiple projects that are pathways to what is called "Bench to Bedside"... Meaning, you work on small to large efforts that lead to cures, or at the least, slowing down cancer and diabetes so that someone gets to live. Additionally, work hours are more than fair and most people from Directors to Admin coordinators seem to always be at least satisfied if not more than passionate about their day to day functions.

    Cons

    Working for a non-profit can have it's downsides as it is just that... a non-profit, not subject to profit sharing, stocks or bonuses. But the 401(k) equivalent is more than fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest and diversify your employees as it has been a fairly new initiative in the past 2 years with HR taking on a more "non academia" point of view. But some titles must be properly re-classed and salaries given to those who really deserve what that new title entails!
