    Overall a Good Place to Postdoc

    Sep 16, 2021 - Postdoctoral Fellow 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great career development opportunities and benefits. As a researcher, your lab is going to be the biggest impact but the structure of the organization is overall really grat.

    Cons

    Seattle cost of living is high and Fred Hutch pays base NIH postdoc salary. They should definitely supplement this salary to compensate for living in Seattle.

    Incredible Place to Work!

    Aug 29, 2021 - Research Technician 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    One thing I noticed straight away was the incredible amount of diversity at Fred Hutch. I feel SO welcome at Fred Hutch. The environment is one of continual learning, the work is challenging, but it never gets too busy that you push aside the actual learning behind the tasks you are doing in lab.

    Cons

    It can be a bit fast-paced at times, but if you aren't uncomfortable then you aren't pushing yourself.

    Great IT department that strives to stay modern

    Feb 18, 2021 - Applications Support Engineer II in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Working in the Fred Hutch IT department is full of growth opportunities. Managers encourage learning new technologies and improving processes. If there's a technology that you want to get more experience with, you can probably find someone who knows a lot about it and pick their brain. The company also provides ample time off. Fred Hutch observes all US national holidays, and your vacation time grows with each year of employment. Hiring from within is also something that is encouraged. Fred Hutch is also very adamant about diversity in hiring whenever possible.

    Cons

    Since Fred Hutch is a non-profit, it's hard for them to stay competitive with the big tech companies in the area.

    Rookie Management

    Apr 14, 2021 - Software Developer in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nice view of Lake Union.

    Cons

    I was truly shocked that a well-regarded institution like Fred Hutch had such a poorly managed central (campus) IT department. The main probably I saw was inexperienced, unqualified rookie management. Most of the management staff has no previous management experience, and little or no IT experience. It's the blind leading the blind. Shockingly bad decision-making is the norm. And it's clear from the infrastructure and legacy software that bad decision making has prevailed for years. The place is really a mess - they literally don't know what they're doing. There is no knowledge or experience managing IT projects or personnel. Very frustrating place to work.

    Great place to work depending on the department/team

    Aug 12, 2021 - Administrative Coordinator in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    In general, Fred Hutch is generous with their benefits package, including an automatic 7% contribution to your retirement whether or not you contribute from your own salary.

    Cons

    Depending on the division/department/team, you might find yourself in a toxic work environment without a lot of support. Do your research and reach out to people who are already working there for perspective.

    Committed to Science

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    As an organization, Fred Hutch is extremely committed to advancing science, equity, and making a positive impact on the community.

    Cons

    Worker satisfaction really depends on the department you work in. Some of this depends on the funding provided to each particular group and also management style.

    Pros

    2020 was telling...Fred Hutch showed how supportive the company truly is during these time. They support flexibility in schedule, work location, etc.

    Tough transition, but upon rebalance over a brief period of time it was worthwhile.
