I worked at The Institute of Cancer Research full-time (More than 5 years)
Top quality research, great people to work with and good facilities. Gym on site, as well as lots of clubs.
Some processes are lacking when compared to industry. There is limited career progression unless you move. Site management are not the best.
Advice to Management
I interviewed at The Institute of Cancer Research in July 2015.
Was offered a date for an interview that I couldn't make (as I was out the country) so asked if it was possible to reschedule for a few days later and was told no problem, we will be in touch shortly with a new date. Heard nothing for a week or two so emailed to see if a new date had been reached for my interview to be told they had filled the position!
Very unprofessional, unapologetic and totally unacceptable. If you are offered an interview, you expect the best person for the job will get the job, not the earliest candidate to interview. I wasted days preparing for this interview and had provisionally arranged accommodation assuming I would hear back from them.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
