    I worked at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time

    Pros

    People are rewarded for working hard. I observed multiple people navigate their way up through progressively challenging positions taking on increasing responsibility each step of the way.

    Cons

    Being a large organization with multiple departments and many layers, there are two downsides. First, problem staff have a tendency to stick around much longer than they might in a leaner organization. Second, it is particularly challenging to enact bold changes; there are inherent incentives to thinking small and incrementally.
