Pros

Many people have been working 20+ years here for a reason. The pay is great, and the benefits are better than what you would see in 80% of the companies out there.

Cons

Communication about future plans could be better. Most information regarding major changes seems to trickle from employee to employee based on what their managers told them.

Advice to Management

We know you are committed to the cause, but it would be helpful if employees had more direction on the really important issues that the hospital is facing.

    Pros

    Very reasonable work hours, and the feeling of contributing to research is rewarding. CHORI has a good reputation as a research institute.

    Cons

    Some politicking: recurring tensions between research team and staff in one lab. The location in Oakland is a bit on the iffy side if you take public transportation to and from.

    Advice to Management

    As far as I know, "management" generally stays out of the PIs' way, so the managing experience varies from lab to lab
