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

Good work/life balance
Really good retirement plan

Cons

Pay could be better; there should be more standardization across teams. Each team is managed very differently depending on who the project manager is, which creates inconsistencies.

    Pros

    One of the top two cancer research centers on the West coast, this non-profit research institution is integrated with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, which receives patients from around the Pacific Northwest and colleborates closely with the University of Washington and Seattle Children's Hospital. Even the architecture is designed to promote collaboration. Research includes basic, immunology (esp. graft vs. host), clinical, infectious disease (VIDI), epidemiology and public health. On-site seminars give it a true learning environment feel, as do seminars on bioinformatics and management for employees.

    Cons

    Not really specific to this institution, but government cuts to funding have really made it more difficult to thrive in a primarily academic institution.
