    Good Cancer Hospital, Research is not so good

    Master Student In Research (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsNice people, Some facilities are good and new.

    ConsToo many PI's, resulting in not enough money available for some. PI's are uncertain, some master students and PhD's had to be relocated due to this issue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess PI's, bigger groups.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Just a drag place

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Former Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsWork / Life balance and nothing else

    ConsIT system sucks even FBI would not be so crazy

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote hardworking people within rather than get outsiders.

    Best job, worst treatment

    IT Member (Former Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsGood people to work with, and a mission like no other

    ConsAdministration does not value the very talent they hire nor trust them to do their jobs. Arrogance abounds and they assume they know more than the experts they hire.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the C-Suite people end to end. Time for a house cleaning before the place declines to the levels pre PBC status.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No career advancement, hiring practices and salaries not consistent across the board

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDedicated Clinical and Nursing staff
    Healthcare and retirement benefits through NYS are exceptional; once NYS severs ties, however, benefits may take a nose dive.

    ConsNo career development or opportunities, outside of Nursing.
    Employee loyalty/longevity/performance not recognized; No employee incentives or room for growth or advancement.
    Top heavy administration made up of uninspired second-and third-stringers.
    Top-down communication is abysmal. HR Department lacks leaders.
    No rewards for merit.
    Salaries and hiring practices are inconsistent and capricious.
    Lackluster leadership; corporate vision is myopic with no "big picture" strategy.
    Employee morale is low.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top-heavy organization

    Faculty (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsVery good team of doctors, clinic staff and researchers. Benefits are good.

    ConsVery top-heavy organization, especially too many directors, administrators and managers. They care only about saving their backs. Too much focus on fund raising and advertising, it's only the business model they care about. No real focus towards helping clinical or research staff do their jobs. Departments that are there to provide support to research do nothing but impede research projects. Also, pay is not that great for clinicians and research staff. Lot of good and talented people have been leaving for variety of reasons. Those who are staying have to over come too many odds to succeed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrim the fat, especially all those managers and administrators (non MDs and PhDs) who walk around all day and waste time in useless meetings. Take care of your clinical and research staff better, you don't realize how much talent you are wasting or letting go. These are the people who will help the organization succeed, not the useless ones that only talk all day and make up arbitrary rules and regulations. Promote people who do the work, and not just your friends.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    HR position

    Human Resources Internship (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsGood department
    Good team
    Variety of tasks-experience fundraising, organising employee recognition program, inventory management,
    Good setting
    Interesting work
    Good benefts

    ConsSometimes autocratic boss. Assignments could sometimes be trivial and unimportant. There was no knowledge or skills gained in certain assignments only a boss riding high on an ego trip

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter program organisation. See and discover skills of employees. Be aware of people working several layers below you. Assess if projects assigned are appropriate to the education and experience of the employee

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
