Pros

good salary and benefits compared with simliar job in other charities, good life/work balance, Sufficient funding for scientific research. Plenty training opportunities.

Cons

In June 2011 it was reported that the animal rights organisation Animal Aid plans to place a series of adverts in British newspapers urging members of the public to stop giving donations to Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation, the Alzheimer's Society and Parkinson's UK unless they cease their support for research which involves animal testing.

Advice to Management

Overall i had good experience working at cancer research UK. But professional development programme for junior staff is a bit lacking.
