    I have been working at City of Hope full-time (More than 5 years)


    Magnificent mission and the opportunity to work with some of the most gifted, hard working, motivated, and inspiring, staff, clinicians, researchers in cancer and diabetes care.

    Company invests in employees. Hosts several wellness activities from on site yoga, picnics, etc as well as learning and professional development week, tuition reimbursement (not alot but it helps), etc

    Newly revived focus on a culture of service and ownership which although scary for many is encouraging employees to step up and help improve their areas.

    Growing investment in management development.

    Good place to work.


    Vacation for new non- managers is meager.

    Health benefits are adequate but don't compare to other large employers.

    Career paths are not clear for staff, and require staff to be particularly industrious or to be willing to leave their workgroup to rise in the organization. This isn't necessarily unique to this environment, but it would be ideal if career paths were better defined for most disciplines so to both help staff continue to grow their roles and contribution and also allow departments to keep their high performers.

    No standard telecommuting or flex work policy. Some departments and managers offer it, some don't. In this day and age, more flexibility among knowledge workers is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in staff and to transform the company to maintain leadership in our space.
