    Pros

    stable job, it is just a job. that is it. This is not a place to make money or learn something. once you're trained, you have to repeat what you are told millions of times. literally you could work to death here IF you are lucky to survive the lay-off wave. Oh, benefit is just above average.

    Cons

    8.5 working hour for you. no bonus. 2-3% raise every year. limited space for your career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanagement and lots of unnecessary paper work. Dana Farber tends to hire more managers. More managers you have, more paperwork you have for the same amount of work. Once we had a manager, we had to fill the form he created. After he was gone, a new manager brought his forms for us to fill. Managers seem to spend lots of their time reviewing paperwork. Without creating paperwork for us to fill, they seem to have very little to do. So creating unnecessary paperwork means one more job position, whose salary is higher than the people who do the real work.
