    Current Employee - Faculty in Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Faculty in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to do your best science. Great support from leadership. Financial support for your pilot research. First class admin and support staff. Beautiful facilities set on the shores of Lake Union. Dedication to the mission of the best science in the service of reducing the societal burden of cancer. Opportunities to be promoted from within. My entire career has been here and it's all been worthwhile.

    Cons

    Pay is better than most universities but less than most cancer centers. No sense of community across research groups. Every PI runs their own show so the quality of the experience for support staff depends on the research group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the faculty on par with first class research centers.

    I have been working at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunity for lab experience as a Student. Worked hard and was rewarded with a full time job in the summer with more responsibilities. Learned how to do dna extraction and pcr. Opportunities to attend lectures on a wide range of subjects such as cancer 101 and new technology such as droplet pcr.

    Cons

    lower salary then working in the private industry, the position is more to do with basic maintenance of the lab/office work rather than research.
