Pros

Colleagues are topnotch and for the most part, generous and helpful. The institution's mission is clear, and every employee is made to feel that their contribution is important. Benefits and compensation are good. There was a strong sense of camaraderie on my team.

Cons

Resources for training and development were sometimes hard to come by in my (non-patient facing) department.

Advice to Management

Encourage all departments/divisions to invest in training and development of their staff. It will reenergize employees who've been asked for years to do more with less.

    Pros

    Excellent, warm, inspiring environment. Researchers were very accessible. I was there when Ron Depinho became president and he seems to have a great vision for the hospital.

    Cons

    It was a research appointment, so some weekends were spent at work, though that's pretty standard. No other real significant cons if you want to work in research.


  2. I was unlucky, no where to turn to

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice environment,

    Cons

    I worked with lying, cheating, scum lab-partners. They lied and lied about me to the PI. I asked the department manager and my PI for an independent reviewer of my performance. Both denied me! my lab partners keps on lying about my performance and then the PI fired me. Their was no one to turn to.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE allow independent reviewers.
