    I worked at The Institute of Cancer Research full-time

    Pros

    Facilities - superb! Within Breast Cancer Now one has access to a wide range of equipment that is relatively well maintained, it's rather well organised.

    Cons

    People and management. As always, depends on a team, but some (senior) staff and PIs have been getting away with appalling treatment of more junior researchers. Not very progressive in thinking, very hierarchical, not a lot of scope for innovation.

    Zero career progression opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Introduce penalties for poor management and unfair treatment.

    Higher Scientific Officer Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at The Institute of Cancer Research in July-2015.

    Interview

    Was offered a date for an interview that I couldn't make (as I was out the country) so asked if it was possible to reschedule for a few days later and was told no problem, we will be in touch shortly with a new date. Heard nothing for a week or two so emailed to see if a new date had been reached for my interview to be told they had filled the position!

    Very unprofessional, unapologetic and totally unacceptable. If you are offered an interview, you expect the best person for the job will get the job, not the earliest candidate to interview. I wasted days preparing for this interview and had provisionally arranged accommodation assuming I would hear back from them.

    Interview Questions

    • The only question I was asked was 'can you come on this date on an interview?'   1 Answer
