I have been working at Fox Chase Cancer Center part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Students are usually encouraged to complete their own projects. Everyone there, from researchers to office staff, are incredibly nice and helpful. This definitely is great experience for anyone interesting in pursuing a career in cancer research. Plus, there are tea and cookies every weekday at 3:30.

Cons

Like other research jobs, it is not typically a 9-5 job. You will almost always be there on the weekends or late at night. The research really does designate your schedule.

    Pros

    The experience was fantastic. The people was great, the scientific lectures were very interesting and your colleagues were very intelligent and respectful.

    Cons

    That it is a smaller place and although the people there are top notch, they do not have such a breadth of different research interest.
