    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Scientist in New York, NY

    Pros

    It is good for doing research and if you like New York City then you will enjoy the main campus on the Upper West Side/Harlem.

    Cons

    The administration and IT is going to drive you nuts and you will struggle to make it to the end of the month. Medical campus is located in a bad and dirty neighborhood. The metro station (168th Street) probably the worst in Manhattan.
