Leading cancer research hospital with good pay and benefits
Clinical epigenetics research officer (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC8 October 2017
A great institute to work for, however, like most big institutions, a lot of time can be lost to administrative issues. For the most part, the staff are great and the pay is higher than what is offered at other institutions, however, they preference offering contracts rather than permanent employment.
Pros
Salary packaging
Cons
Long hours, slow administrative processes

Job Culture
Clinical and research staff do an amazing job
Manager Security (Former Employee) –  St Andrews Place East Melbourne2 March 2017
Since commencing in 1988 I have seen amazing advances in the treatment of cancer patients and the advances in research which has places Peter Mac at the forefront of oncology treatment in the world.

No two days were the same in my role as Manager Security and General Services.

The culture amongst clinical staff is one of caring and empathy towards the patients and their relatives.

The hardest part of the job was to see children struck down with cancer.

The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with people, staff, patients and visitors. I was able to suggest and make improvements in the field of security, cleaning and patient accommodation.
Pros
Autonomy
Cons
government red tape
