Great work/life balance, Management could improve

Project Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsPlushy offices - the offices are much better than some large companies like Amazon or Microsoft.
Great work-life balance. If you want to come in late and leave early, no one will stop you. Great for people who are active; there's a lot of encouragement to commute by bicycle and general physical fitness, very appropriate for a cancer-prevention org. The people are generally well-educated and concerned about world issues.

ConsTop management makes all the decisions. I'm in mar-com, and my team and I have to do a lot of education and training on what we do. While the management has slowly come to learn what is important, they still waste a lot of money on things they do not understand.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust the experts in the field, rather than imposing your own biases.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

No sense of community across research groups.… Advice to Senior Management: Pay the faculty on par with first class research centers.
