Pros

The Hutch is an awesome place to work. Great colleagues, great access to resources and equipment needed to conduct research. Engaging and driven community at the forefront of scientific discoveries. Great benefits, beautiful location next to South Lake Union.

Cons

Experiences vary depending on the lab you are working in. Some labs, funding may be a bit more tight depending on the financial state of that lab. Labs generally receive their funding from outside means.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cafeteria, some nice people, (false) sense of reputation by outside world

    Cons

    Management responsibilities given to people without experience, focus on money - not quality data or performance, amazing this place hasn't imploded. Relationships between departments is horrible, communication is absent and physicians are not held accountable. The place is an accident wating to happen. If the public knew how funding is wasted there would be hell to pay.

    Advice to Management

    They don't care so there is no point in sharing advice.


  2. "Good community of individuals passionate about what they do"

    Pros

    Large enough to have policies and procedures for most things, but small enough to make it feel personal. It is easy to get to know most people within your division. Even at the lowest levels it is easy to get to know upper management of your division, and they are typically willing to work with staff to develop skills and enhance portfolios to keep the job challenging and interesting. FHCRC is willing to hire those without specific research administration experience if the skills the candidate has are a good match for the position.

    Cons

    Project Coordinators are essentially the single administrative person for their faculty, so they end up doing many tasks outside their job descriptions. As with all research institutions dependent on outside funding, budgets are tight and there is a Center-wide awareness of costs at every turn.
