Pros

Some of the labs are world-renowned, with excellent reputation. As an institution, it is attractive in that it spans all facets of cancer research and drug development from basic R&D, to development, to drug screening to clinical trials.

Cons

Not all of the staff or researchers are highly motivated or talented. Although the location is quite good in central London or Sutton.

Advice to Management

I would advise management to always be sure to contribute to professional developement of employees, although there is some of that in place, including training and coursework.
