Pros

Tuition reimbursement; insurance; parking; healthy food options

Cons

management; micromanaging; want you to work 45 hrs without flex time; for a promotion you can only get a 15% increase at max of your current salary (which usually puts you at the minimum range of the new position). Staff is underpaid and management is overpaid; bonuses and rewards always go to upper management, rarely is it given to staff. High turnover rate.

Advice to Management

Staff also has a family to go to on the evenings. There is apparently something wrong when the turnover rate is high in the departments.

    Pros

    Working with the best of the best in oncology research; approachable faculty; co-workers from every area of the world; competitive salaries, beautiful surroundings (buildings/furniture), top-notch equipment.

    Cons

    Recent change in leadership (president) who is reworking how things have been done. Wants to commercialize. Lots of changes from the top-down. Not everyone is happy with the changes. Also brought some bad press which dedicated employees are having a hard time getting over. Also since a state agency it is difficult to fire low-achievers and high achievers are overburdened.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the efforts of the dedicated, long-term employees; look at experience more than letters after someone's name. Rate work ethic higher than the degree that someone has.
