    I have been working at City of Hope full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    City of Hope has a friendly, collaborative environment and state-of-the-art technology. Research primarily focuses on cancer and diabetes, and we have translational projects through the hospital due to our close ties with the doctors.

    Cons

    As a graduate student, the hours we work nights and weekends are expected despite lack of compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Tell people who work in the hospital that we have a PhD program on campus through the research institute (many of them have no idea).
