    I have been working at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

    Pros

    Working with great people, working on important projects, high paced environment, constantly learning new things from my peers, regular exposure to some of the most awesome scientists in the field and I feel like I get a lot of support from my PI and my DFCI team. I have a good PI that respects me and my team and cares about our career development- can't really complain.

    Cons

    A lot of managers need to go. This often happens in an institution like ours; you get these managers that strive for mediocrity and don't really have an understanding of what each team does or how to support or advance them so a lot of good people feel like this is a dead end job. Also if we got rid of some of the people that really aren't adding any value we could stop hiring extra people to do their jobs that they're too incompetent to handle and pay our awesome people appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wrote it all out in the cons.

    I worked at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional people and good resources. Working at Dana Farber was a good learning experience and I recommend it to anyone in health care.

    Cons

    Staffing and operational issues sometimes arise due to the link between all hospitals in the Longwood area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire excellent and well trained staff.
