I have been working at Memorial Sloan-Kettering full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Truly world class hospital, providing state of the art care,
Cutting edge research in all departments,

Cons

On the research side, the relentless focus on cancer can become a little monotonous.
Crappy benefits for postdocs: eg. no 401(k) even after several years.
Daycare spaces are limited, which presents problems for academic staff.
Insufficient housing, especially for postdocs: currently limited to three years in MSKCC housing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up, but pay attention to postdoc benefits

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan-Kettering full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    work life balance, tuition reimbursement, great health benefits

    Cons

    Difficult organizational culture between physicians and administrative professionals. Sometimes hard to break the mold from "the way we've always done it" to something that works better (administratively).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more emphasis on building your non clinical staff.
