    I worked at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

    Pros

    great supporting environment, meeting other people, helping people and the world, no backstabber, great coworkers, your work would always be appreciated, free classes.

    Cons

    low salary, low budget, uncertainty on most of the things, working with sick people, parking fee, hard to move up in ladder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maybe let up the parking fee, invest in better computers, invest in IT persons, more parking space, better food choice in the cafetaria

    I worked at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

    Pros

    The Hutch is a very collegial atomosphere, generally the atomosphere is laid back although it is by no means a place for slakers; ther is an emphasis on getting quality data that can withstand scrutiny etc.

    Cons

    The one bad things about the Hutch is that the expectations can make you feel like you're always under pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management needs to understand that the best thing they can do is routinely and accurately review the performance of every employee and not play favorites
