I worked at Huntsman Cancer Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Plenty of space, good if you study genomics, friendly people for the most part. If you like a nice work/life balance, most people are roughly 9-5.

Cons

Overly bureaucratic, if you don't study genomics there isn't much else going on and most of the people doing other studies are leaving.

Advice to Management

Get rid of most of the inefficient admin staff. The leadership on the science end of things is completely focusing on studying the genomics of cancer. It is also concerning that there is a lot of open, unused science bench space and yet there is an expansion of the building going on. While I understand that funds were donated for this effort, giving some funds to scientists that are in need (due to the poor academic funding environment) would be a better use of the money. Progress doesn't happen in unused space.

    I have been working at Huntsman Cancer Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to become part of the Huntsman Cancer Institute family- picnics, seminars, employee surveys.

    Cons

    A lot of the established PI's are leaving the institute. The inexperienced, new investigators are having a difficult time establishing their labs with the little funding available.


  2. Inspiring place to work
