Fred Hutch is a great place to work if you want a fulfilling job, but not a place to make a ton of money

Research Technician Supervisor (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsThe culture of the Hutch is great, the majority of the people who work there are helpful and great to work with. Since so many different diseases and illnesses are researched, not just cancer, you can really be a part of improving many people's lives.

ConsWell to be blunt, unless you are a PI, you should work at Fred Hutch because you want to make a difference, not because you want to make a lot of money. Since the PI's are "managers" and are not trained in how to manage, it can be difficult to move up or get good raises.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
