I worked at Health Research full-time (More than 10 years)
They provide a cordial, respectful and healthy work environment. I worked at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, one of their division and I found the work environment a wonderful place to work in. HRI staff are very efficient, cordial and treat you well unlike a more recent employer I worked with Leidos. Moreover, their HR and employee benefits are very well managed and when you raise a concern with them (which I did on one occasion), they treat you with concern, give you complete confidentiality and follow up with you till your concern is resolved. A great company to work with.
Need more opportunities for career development especially at the lower levels of the ladder. I was a researcher as a postdoc for a number of years and without the proper titles, I found it very difficult to apply for grants and get ahead. had to leave the company to pursue better opportunities.
Advice to Management
capitalize on the great work environment that you ahve created. Provide more opportunities to employees who are already there rather than trying to bring in new people all the time.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Health Research (Albany, NY) in January 2014.
Phone interview from a secretary asking me to come in for a in person. The interview was straightforward except for the part where she didn't show me the lab. Had I seen it I probably wouldn't have accepted the job.
