    Pros

    Best benefits of any place I have ever been. Retirement program is awesome. Pay is hit and miss, depending on where you work. Not overly stressful. (sometimes to relaxed)

    Cons

    Opportunities are limited unless you have a PhD or MD. No real career ladder for most positions. There might be some rare ones that come around, but you must perform well and you must time it just perfect when someone else leaves. When I was there I felt like my career was stagnant even though I did my job well and I got above average raises every year

    Advice to Management

    I love Huntsman Cancer Institute. I think it is a great place to work. However, if you have lots of ambition to move up in your career, this place probably isn't for you unless you are a doctor or a PhD. No bonuses like you might get in the corportate world.

    Pros

    Benefits are phenomenal! The retirement benefit is one of the best in the state as far as matching contributions go, eligible from day 1 on all of them, including medical.

    Cons

    fairly stressful, at times high turnover,

    Advice to Management

    competitive raises with each year of experience. A lot of money is invested in employees that would stay for a reasonable raise after 6 months, 12 months, 24, months, 36 mo, 60 mo, etc...


  6. False sense of commitment to employees
