    I have been working at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plushy offices - the offices are much better than some large companies like Amazon or Microsoft.
    Great work-life balance. If you want to come in late and leave early, no one will stop you. Great for people who are active; there's a lot of encouragement to commute by bicycle and general physical fitness, very appropriate for a cancer-prevention org. The people are generally well-educated and concerned about world issues.

    Cons

    Top management makes all the decisions. I'm in mar-com, and my team and I have to do a lot of education and training on what we do. While the management has slowly come to learn what is important, they still waste a lot of money on things they do not understand.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the experts in the field, rather than imposing your own biases.
