Approves of CEO

I have been working at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer resesarch center is an amazing place to work, generous benefits with tons of holidays and lots of sick time. Great facilities, with lots of experienced staff.

Cons

Each lab is run individually therefore salaries are contingent on grant funds...makes it hard to get a raise. All of the PI's have different styles of running a lab...some are better than others. I have found that the stand off approach is hard in a lab, as there is no accountability for some people.

    Flexible hours, very nice and friendly co-workers, beautiful office and neighborhood, free parking on weekends, weekdays 10 hour metered street parking available

    The job nature is pretty boring, but luckily supervisors let you train on other stuff once you get a hand on what you are working on.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture of the Hutch is great, the majority of the people who work there are helpful and great to work with. Since so many different diseases and illnesses are researched, not just cancer, you can really be a part of improving many people's lives.

    Cons

    Well to be blunt, unless you are a PI, you should work at Fred Hutch because you want to make a difference, not because you want to make a lot of money. Since the PI's are "managers" and are not trained in how to manage, it can be difficult to move up or get good raises.

    Advice to Management

    Take to managing out of the PI's hands. They are there to research, not manage staff!
