    I have been working at City of Hope full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People work hard and care about their jobs. Retirement benefits are terribly meager and there's a 5-year vesting schedule. Fair amount of PTO, and in my position, some work from home flexibility. People tend to be VERY busy. Employees are frequently rewarded with lunches, raffles, etc.

    Cons

    no huge cons for me

    I have been working at City of Hope full-time

    Pros

    The research hard environment is good at City of Hope, where you can access good facilities and cores.

    Cons

    While I had good resource to do research, I found the training at City of Hope is poor. I do not have chance to expose myself both internally and externally. The research done at City of Hope is largely serving PI's potential clinically trial or his or her future company product. Thus, individual career development is really limited.

    I worked at City of Hope full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sense of purpose, but none overall.

    Cons

    Very hostile work environment, don't expect HR to do anything . I reported the work environment to HR and was ignored. No work life balance, expect to constantly work 12 hour days , with no appreciation and a demand for more. Favoritism is normal here. Overall a terrible place, very stressful and hostile environment. High employee turnover.
