    I have been working at Fox Chase Cancer Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highly collaborative, helpful facilities, excellent daycare for children of employees, open dialogue between clinicians and researchers, great mentoring for trainees and young faculty

    Cons

    A lot of red tape for approval of equipment maintenance contracts, difficult ordering system, no retirement matching for trainees, campus far from Center City

    Advice to Management

    Please reduce red tape and offer trainees retirement benefits. Health care benefits are excellent, but please modify maternity leave policies so that sick/vacation/personal time is not exhausted

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fox Chase Cancer Center (Philadelphia, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    HR emailed me asking me to call to set up an interview. Spoke briefly with HR who was very friendly. The interview was ultimately set up via email. I met with a few different people on the day of my interview and everyone was very friendly. The interview consisted more of me asking questions than them asking me questions. I had a great experience speaking with everyone. The only negative experience I had was the time it took to hear back after the interview. Otherwise, it was a great experience.
