Former Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in Brooklyn, NY

I worked at SUNY Downstate Medical Center as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Good benefits for some...
Very helpful personnel at the Research Foundation (phenomenally better than anywhere else in that place)
Living in New York City (also a negative, see below)

Cons

Research is VERY BAD QUALITY
Management is non existent
I wouldn't take my dog to this hospital for treatment
Very high crime rate in the neighbourhood of the hospital/medical school
If you want to bury your research career go ahead and join Downstate!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of people who actually WORK and get rid of people that just hang out doing nothing...

    I have been working at SUNY Downstate Medical Center

    Pros

    Multi-faceted environment - working in an academic medical center. Opportunity to work with business, clinical, research, and academic professionals all on the same campus.

    Cons

    Government salaries less than private sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More Town Hall meetings would be nice.
