Former Employee - IT Department in New York, NY
Former Employee - IT Department in New York, NY

I worked at Rockefeller University full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I worled in the IT Dept for 10+ years. They are cutting edge in technology, no doubt. They have the financial resources to do so.

Cons

No chance of advancement. 10 years after working here, I'm doing advanced, challenging work, but also still doing all the grunt work I was doing on day 1.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think about employee professional and personal growth needs

    I worked at Rockefeller University

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, plenty of vacation time, awesome benefit package, awesome learning environment (if you work in the right department)

    Cons

    Staff morale and respect from management is dependent on what department you work in. If you are an Investigator or Scientific candidate you are catered to while staff without prestigious backgrounds or ambitious careers are not valued. Worked in hospital unit and senior management has no respect for hospital employees specifically nursing. Low, non competitive nursing salaries, and plenty of passive-aggression coupled with many drama queens and big egos. Old boys club atmosphere. Basically if you don't have an MD or PH.D behind your name you are nobody there. Non-existent career ladder or opportunity for growth if you are nursing staff or related fields.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect all employees regardless of titles, need for more stringent policies which would reduce abuses, bring in younger (thus fresher ideas) administrative staff with not just research experience but with patient care experience. And value your nurses and nurse assistants they make things happen too!
