This great cancer research, treatment and training center has undergone a lot of changes in recent years. Under the new President, there has been a number of work force reductions, loss of faculty and administrators, and a degradation of worker's morale. However, it is still quite a good place to work if you are in a good team with good management. Mentoring is definitely something one should look for when working at this institution. Beware of soft-funded positions since they may dry up at any point.
