    I worked at Cancer Research UK full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love the culture and environment. Very strong and supportive managers. Very people focused and keen to develop staff to meet their full potential.

    Cons

    Salary fairly low, although comparable with others in the same sector. Change of head office location an interesting decision which has resulted in some people moving on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting people at the forefront of your decisions.
