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

Pros

You can meet some scientists with wisdom and deep & broad knowledge.
Good postdoctoral services.
Convenience for transportation and downtown life.

Cons

A few of Principle Investigators are very money-oriented and always proposal, funding, and publications.....I know it is tough for budge-limited, but research should be fun and will be funded.

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

    Pros

    Working 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.

    Cons

    Fred 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.
