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

Pros

Good work/life balance
Really good retirement plan

Cons

Pay could be better; there should be more standardization across teams. Each team is managed very differently depending on who the project manager is, which creates inconsistencies.

    I have been working at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Every review has valid points and you'll notice a pattern that folks who work directly with science give good review in general and all others are dissatisfied. So if you are a scientist or a lab support person, do whatever you can to work at this prestigious institution. Admin, IT, marketing, etc.? Better look else where. I write this as a person with over 5 years of experience working in a non-scientific role.

    PROS:
    1) Prestige of working for a world class research institution.
    2) New-ish buildings and wonderful location.
    3) Generous retirement benefit.

    Cons

    1) Low pay.
    2) Palace intrigue.
    3) Inconsistent IT resource and support.
    4) Funding challenges (which means job security).
    5) Lack of advancement.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
