    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Cancer Research UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging working environment, highly motivated and dedicated staff who are committed to working for a very good cause. There is also an excellent work life balance. Everyone is very supportive and the working environment is highly collegiate.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides of the organisation; but if I was pushed I would say that it takes quite a long time to progress in the company. Also, the salary is lower than equivalent jobs in the private sector but that's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer staff progression guidelines

    I worked at Cancer Research UK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The majority of the staff are great...

    Cons

    ...however there are some that aren't so nice that really shouldn't be working there. For example one of them said that he sacked me because "I would not fit in" - exactly the problem that those with Asperger's Syndrome have.

    Advice to Management

    Please reinstate me.
