Pros

I enjoy working at City of Hope because I know that I'm making a difference in the lives of patients and families here and around the world. I will never make the money that I might in the for-profit world, but I knowing that I'm part of changing the way cancer is treated makes it worthwhile.

Cons

First off, the location isn't the greatest. Secondly, as in all large organizations, the troops sometimes hear rumors and half-truths, before officially being informed.

Advice to Management

Sometimes it would be helpful for communications to be delivered from management rather than to have them delivered by the rumor mill.

    Pros

    Variety of job roles, potentially changing projects, envirnment rich with cross departamental and academic talks and learning opprtunities. Good for those who actually like academia and aren't just in clinical resaerch to be a cog - that is if you look for the oprtunities proactively - its not hard to find. International guest lectures and seminar opportunities for CME and staying current in several disciplines related to basic science and clinical research.

    Cons

    Pay increases are standardized - no promotion or salary increases based on merit, most peope get 3% max increase unless your in administration. 1 year interviews that are positive or highly productive don't correlate to a bonus or salary increase of more than 3%.

    Advice to Management

    CRIM and Div Information Sciences need to improve communication, ease of access to services CRIM offers and collaborative efforts with the scientific researchers and div of population sciences. CRIM is there to facilitate clinical research and bridge the gap between science, clinical trials and "translational research" yet scientists find the politics and administrational hurdles hard to overcome in order to access the data mining treasure trove that CRIM holds and that Population Sciences hold as well, albeit separately and sometimes, redundantly.

    Pros

    The best reason for anyone to work at City of Hope is the collaborative spirit. Everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand if anyone is seeking assistance and proactively volunteer their efforts to get the job done.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can be mundane, but that is with any job. The organization is extremely large and perhaps due to that is very bureaucratic, so there are many many processes in place which definitely hamper timelines.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management does a great job of communicating, please keep up the great work!
