      Pros

      Good benefits My department does not enforce a dress code and I can adjust my schedule however I see fit Good mix of age, gender, and race diversity Pays well Beautiful campus Cafeteria food is super good

      Cons

      Company culture isn't really there. I feel like FH is really divided by what lab/department you work in. Policies and rules vary by department, and I don't think Fred Hutch HR is doing much to regulate them. My specific department manager was unable to provide me with written policies regarding sick leave, vacation, etc. Because nothing was written down and signed, my manager was able to make up new policies on the spot and without review.
