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

    Pros

    I came to COH as a post doc scientist who had tired of pre clinical projects and really wanted to work in clinical trials. I have been here over 6 years and it has been fantastic, both scientifically and professionally. I have learnt so much. The departments and procedures involved in clinical research at COH generally work well. I came from UK academia where I had to deal with a lot of duties that werent really my role (eg chasing after patient specimens). Here, Ive found that COH research staff are very happy to provide support within their well defined roles. This has been very empowering as it has allowed me to concentrate on what I'm good at.

    Cons

    There hasn’t really been any negatives for me yet.

    Advice to Management

    The HR dept take a long time to sort things out. They seem under staffed. This seems short sighted for such a big workplace.
