The Hutch is a good place to work, but not a good place to develop your career.

Pros

You're work will help make people healthier and happier.
Work-life balance is respected.
Personal health is supported.
Benefits are decent.
Family friendly.
Accepting of all different kinds of people.

Cons

People in management are successful MDs and PhDs and often have neither the training nor talent for managing people.
People without MDs or PhDs are undervalued.
Very little opportunity for moving up, getting meaningful raises, etc., unless you move to a different group within the Hutch.
IT infrastructure is embarrassingly behind.
Pay is low.

Advice to Management

Let managers run the place; let MDs and PhD contribute as valuable subject area experts.

    Pros

    Research/Scientific side seems brilliant, dedicated, and living out the healthy lifestyles they research. Some on the Administrative side are there, too.

    Cons

    Slow, inefficient, focus on protecting one's own job seems greater than improving the way work can be done

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean, mean what you say, then just do it.
