Good community of individuals passionate about what they do

Project Coordinator II (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsLarge enough to have policies and procedures for most things, but small enough to make it feel personal. It is easy to get to know most people within your division. Even at the lowest levels it is easy to get to know upper management of your division, and they are typically willing to work with staff to develop skills and enhance portfolios to keep the job challenging and interesting. FHCRC is willing to hire those without specific research administration experience if the skills the candidate has are a good match for the position.

ConsProject Coordinators are essentially the single administrative person for their faculty, so they end up doing many tasks outside their job descriptions. As with all research institutions dependent on outside funding, budgets are tight and there is a Center-wide awareness of costs at every turn.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
