    Pros

    Structured with significant brand recognition in the area. Pretty awesome benefits. Training was good, though much of that was an extremely considerate and patient trainer. It's a beautiful place to work.

    Cons

    fairly stressful and parking is an absolute joke! Not an easy place to commute to due to it's lack of access to major freeways.

    Advice to Management

    honestly, I felt they were doing a pretty good job. Perhaps a bit more focus on the people as people, specifically employees, might be a helpful suggestion.

    I worked at Huntsman Cancer Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is acceptable, work life balance is great. Your experience will depend greatly on what lab you work in. Most people don't work very long hours here so if you're into that, this is your place. Fantastic benefits.

    Cons

    Promotions are probably hard to come by. I cant imagine that this is among the centers that publish the most. Most people don't work very long hours so if you're looking for an environment where people work a lot and try hard to publish, this is not your place.

    Advice to Management

    Hire PIs that actually work on cancer. Seems like a good percentage of PIs are not focused on cancer.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great and the people are wonderful. I had a lot of fun working there and learned a lot!

    Cons

    Parking is expensive and difficult to get but public transit is good enough that you can get there easily without a car. I really don't have anything negative to say about this fine establishment
