    Current Employee - Senior Research Scientist

    I have been working at University of Kansas Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Many, many excellent resources to facilitate pursuit of research interests (e.g. core facilities, internal bridge funding, leadership training, professional development)

    Cons

    Toxic environment that is abusive to postdocs and staff scientists
    Reinforcement of negative behaviors by institutional leadership
    Lack of willingness to advance best talent
    Little to no HR oversight of management of research staff
    Negative interactions between KUMC business units (occupational health, parking services) and their customers (employees)

    Advice to Management

    While the focus of patient care is of utmost importance, if KUMC does not improve the work culture for its talented research staff, recruitment of the best talent will flounder and the university's goal of cancer center designation will fail.
