    Pros

    It is the premier cancer center in western New York. the work culture is good and not very stressful. the facilities are new and there is an atmosphere of collaboration promotion. there is a lot of patients and there is a concept to translate bench to bedside. The clinicians are very willing to interact with the PIs for developing new therapies to benefit patients. Buffalo is good city to live with good schools and lots of things to do

    Cons

    There is air of relaxation amongst the PIs. They are very comfortable, sometime too comfortable. The growth within the organization is minimal but people within the organization get promoted over newer hires. Leadership could be better when hiring new PIs. Training methods are outdated and not challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some better talent for the departments. Training needs to be improved for new students.

    Pros

    Very nice work-life balance, great time off and benefits. It is a very friendly environment which made it easy to go into work every day.

    Cons

    There is a long wait to get a parking spot and it is very expensive. The area surrounding the hospital is not the safest, so street parking can be difficult.

    They work you hard, not a second of down time, but still rewarding

    Pros

    Very, very friendly staff. The people are very blunt and straight forward due to time constraints, no room for fluff, which eleiminates all the fake niceties. The comany is doing a great job of reeveluating itself and its processes bringing in consultants and reorganizing.

    Cons

    Not a lot of growth. Try to get into the top most position you can thee because you won't move from there for a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cherish your best employees and reward them financially
