    Pros

    *Some genuinely dedicated folks working toward curing cancer.
    *Above average benefits package.
    *Great resume builder if you want a career in biomedical research or medicine.

    Cons

    *Unfair compensation: I work in HR and was shocked to learn how much managers, specially upper management make while many support staffs make below industry salary.
    *Difficult funding environment makes for worrisome employment security unless you're in management. I have yet to see a manager fall victim to layoff or attrition.
    *Some horrific managers building their own fiefdom. Crying employees at the HR office is not uncommon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pointless to give advice to management. In my opinion they should all be replaced to change the culture.

    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.
