    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.

    Cons

    * Pay is lagging behind the market, even for a non-profit.
