Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Research/Scientific side seems brilliant, dedicated, and living out the healthy lifestyles they research. Some on the Administrative side are there, too.

Cons

Slow, inefficient, focus on protecting one's own job seems greater than improving the way work can be done

Advice to Management

Say what you mean, mean what you say, then just do it.

    I worked at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefits, mostly daytime hours with few weekends in general. Wonderful cafeteria. Nice parking garages. Easy to get to from freeway.

    Cons

    Individual labs within Hutch function as individual units, and experiences will vary depending upon individual lab you are working for. HR apparently cannot help you transfer or relocate to another lab if you come to them with a problem...of course you can apply for open positions in other labs like everybody else. My experience was 1 star, but in the right lab at the Hutch the experience can be 5 star. Ask LOTS of questions at your job interview to get a feel for the lab/supervisor.
