    I have been working at Huntsman Cancer Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The facilities are great. Benefits package is excellent. Good food options at the cafeterias.

    Cons

    Chronically understaffed (noted by multiple outside sources including the FDA). Not valued by managers or doctors. Poor career progression opportunities. Unsustainable workloads (part of staffing issue). Blamed by management for things
     that are not our responsibilities often. Managers are constantly trying to implement new strategies that are ineffective and waste time. Parking is terrible as well.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and try to retain the employees you have.

    Pros

    Wonderful patients! Gives a feeling of hope working in this type of environment.

    Cons

    Very clique-y environment with staff. High expectations. No room for growth opportunities. No bonuses and raises are mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Base your decisions on employee growth on the work that is done, not your personal opinion of the employee.

    I worked at Huntsman Cancer Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were some good people there. Of course, if you are good, you leave.

    Cons

    Middle Management have no management skills and they are bullies. They act like they are helping, but turn everything you say around to write you up. Extremely high turnover. New Research management kicked the men out and filled all management positions with women, many with no Research experience. There is backbiting and mean spirited actions. I monitored there once and found an absolute mess in the Research data. I had a co-monitor with me and he found many other even more concerning issues. However, their response was to set up a rule that no one who has ever worked for Huntsman can monitor. What are they afraid of? Huntsman HR, except Joey who is rarely there, are no help. HR is in bed with the poor management. Never work there. You will be sorry you did.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and stop thinking your better than everyone else. Stop accepting middle management actions or suggestions without providing appropriate oversite. Stop being afraid of past employees as monitors. We have an important job to do.

    Low Pay, Low Advancement Opportunity,

    Advice to Management

    If it were me, i'd set up a talent identification program with senior leadership. Saw way too many people leave for better paying jobs, that could have been kept and developed with a little bit of work.
