    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally speaking, it is a very good place to work but it is highly dependent on the group you work with and for. There is a high focus on patients and high quality work. They are very happy when you are successful and will usually try to help facilitate success.

    Cons

    The infrastructure of the institution needs to be upgraded and specifically there needs to be more emphasis on communication and utilization of technology to adapt to the modern world. They are very,very slowly moving towards fixing these problems however I could see that theses issues could still be problematic in 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Taking too much time to fix critical issues will result in making the institution irrelevant which would be a pity as it has so much to offer.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time

    Pros

    Cutting edge research Networking opportunities Core facilities

    Cons

    Postdoctoral support (Ithaca postdocs have much better support) Career services support Housing costs Childcare costs and availability

    Advice to Management

    Establish a proper office of postdoctoral affairs. NYU, Columbia, Rockefeller, MSKCC, Einstein and CUNY have them. If you want to retain top talent, spend the money to keep postdocs happy.
