    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Basic research gets a lot of direction from the clinical side of the college.
    New York City has a lot of scientists to collaborate with.
    Facilities are updated.
    Lots of opportunities for networking, seminars, career advice.

    Cons

    Worst IT department I've ever come across in a university setting
    Red tape covers everything. Getting reimbursed for a conference is a Herculean task.
    Basic science is not as respected as translational/clinical, so basic scientists can expect to be shoved down the priority ladder for a lot of things.
    Lately, a lot of funding has left the university, making for tense times.
    There's a lot of dead weight in the administrative chain. Though there are very helpful shining stars that I've encountered, a good amount of admin staff are just incompetent and awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop. Just stop. The red tape is awful. Hire competent people that can make decisions so that policies are flexible. Having 'zero tolerance' makes working at Weill difficult.

    Doesn't Recommend
