    Pluspunten

    Great team, good cause and good systems in place. Nice offices and great annual leave allowance!

    Minpunten

    Structure means that implementing changes takes too long. In terms of my team there was some inconsistency with requirement expectations and goals etc.

    Advies aan management

    Can't offer any advice as don't feel I know enough about the challenges the face(d). For my direct management there were times that I felt there were inconsistencies.

    Pluspunten

    I've had to think long and hard about this one and I can't think of a single Pro if you're the kind of person who is looking for career advancement.
    However, if you're the kind of person who doesn't "live to work" and more the sort of person who "works to live" then you should consider working for CRT. The hours are good, the pay not bad and nothing much is asked of the staff as the management are always too busy avoiding decisions or running from meeting to pointless meeting (not) deciding on the future of the company.

    Minpunten

    I you "live to work" then this is not the company for you, unlesss you want to use this place as a quick step into CRUK or buisness management.
    There is nothing to get excitied about in this company now.
    No career opportunities within the company and very few benefits

    Advies aan management

    Senior management of the lab is percieved as weak, directionless and unable to make decisions
    Group leader level managment are seen as sneaky, gossipy and promote their own agenda.... in fact we wonder what one or two of you actually do on a daily basis.
    Information still does not flow from the top down (despite the training courses).

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan bij Cancer Research Technology (Korter dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    None that I can think of. The campus is quite nice though although there is no interaction with the other companies on site.

    Minpunten

    Strange organisational structure. All the middle management have been entrenched for a long time so no new ideas. Politics drive decision making. A few people appear busy but for the most part this is a part-time job with so little expectations on the employees.

    Advies aan management

    Slimline the management and stop thinking like a big pharma company - you are not that.

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan bij Cancer Research Technology

    Pluspunten

    There is still some very interesting science being done at CRT, and for some very few lucky individuals there are also reasonable to good career opportunities.

    Minpunten

    On the whole the outlook is bleak. The company is moving to an 'alliance model', i.e. funded soley by external partners (the charity no longer supports CRT directly). The effect is that CRT is becoming a CRO for early discovery; couple this with working on risky oncology targets, suscess is far from assured and funding far from secure.

    Advies aan management

    Externally: Fight our corner at CRUK and clarify our role in delivering patient benefit
    Internally: Don't talk about personal / career development when you have no chance of delivering this across the board

    Pluspunten

    - opportunity to work on some cutting edge science
    - collaborate with leading academics and industry peers
    - well equipped labs for the size company
    - good people to work with

    Minpunten

    - poor opportunites for personal and professional development
    - politics
    - parts of the buisness can be somewhat isolated

    Advies aan management

    better delegation to staff
    multi-site labs/offices are clearly a challenge to manage, but sometimes there is a lack of cohesion between various sites/parts of the buisness
