One of the best places to do science, and not just cancer research!

    Pros

    Science is the most important thing that is focused on at Fred Hutch which is a nice difference between corporate world and non profit. It was a very welcoming and friendly place.

    Cons

    There is not as much collaboration between groups as there should be which in the end could aid in scientific advancement quicker. Unfortunately there is not enough money spent on paying their technicians enough money to be competitive with the biotech world so they lose a lot of good people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to spend a little more money in order to keep employees.

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent benefits, excellent employee support.
    Very friendly culture. Rewarding to feel like you are making a difference.

    Cons

    Lab supervisors not well trained in management and motivation. Poor mobility for non-PhDs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it's going to be difficult to keep funding levels high while government funding is dropping. Keep up the good work: what you do is important!
