I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Strong scientific team, especially in the cancer field;
close collaboration with the other two institutes Rockefeller University and Weill Cornell Medical College which are cross the street;
many hospitals around, which promotes both basic and clinical research;
it's in the Manhattan, which is full of passion and good for entrepreneurs to pursue biotech business

Cons

The salary would not be very high for the research postdocs or technicians, but which is a common thing among all the research institutes in the United States

    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The patient's are what keeps you going; you bond with them during a difficult time.

    Cons

    The salary is low for the hours/amount of work, little room for growth, staff tattles on every little thing to get you in trouble, very cliquish colleagues, disorganized management, and so on. If you work as a session assistant on a four day work week expect to be in as early as 6:30am and stay as late as 10pm. The hours are crazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay, don't be so judgmental, listen to your employes on both sides of the fence, organize the schedule better, and don't expect people to be able to work 14 hours and arrive at 6am the next day in great form.
