    I worked at City of Hope full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People I work with for the most part great. Just any other place there are a few one could do without.

    Benefits and work life balance.

    Bonus structure for management employees nice new perk.

    Cons

    The hiring practices is someone brings you in. You have to know someone. The postings are just a formality. The choice has already been made. Management up to the Executive are guilty of doing this.

    No accountability for bad behavior

    Promotions based on if they like you, not on your talent. Many are promoted secretly without announcements. Way too many directors without any organization or direct reports reporting to them.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those for the work they do. Not if they are like. Politics are the only way for a promotion
