Dedicated people, challenging environment

Desktop Support Tech II (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsWorking with people who have a common goal, and lots of passion for their work. Exciting science happening right under your nose. Management cares about their staff and wants them to succeed; effort to promote from within.

ConsFred Hutch started as a coming together of several independent research groups, and there is still a lot of separation and some territorial feeling between the groups. I work in IT, where it has been very prevalent in spite of management efforts to move towards a "one IT" structure. Working with hyper-intelligent doctors can be stressful due to massive egos. Pay is on the low side for the IT world, and funding for the whole organization is heavily dependent on federal grants - thus, the sequester is hurting the pay scale considerably. For the same reason, important IT projects are on hold and equipment is aging.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
