    Pros

    Most people who work here know that they are working for a cancer center which gives a sense of pride in the institution. This translates into a work environment that is friendly and self driven. Memorial is also very good to their employees with top notch benefits like tuition reimbursement and adoption assistance on top of the standard benefits of health insurance and retirement.

    Cons

    It's in New York City so everything around it is expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Great company, expensive location.

    Current Employee - Bioinformatics Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan-Kettering full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked in the research institute doing bioinformatic programming. I guess it all depends on the lab you join more than the company. But many lecture opportunities, pay is good, subsidized housing on roosevelt island is nice and more convenient than you think. Weekly happy with free wine.

    Cons

    Expensive parking so prepare to take subway, about 15-20 minute walk to subway. Security in building so be prepared to wear name tag everywhere and check in but this is now the norm in NYC.

    Pros

    great benefits , work life initiatives, tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    I can only comment on the department I work in. We have had 7 employees quit or move on in the 2 years I have been here. Management in the department of medicine is atrocious - no accountability for when managers do something wrong or make a mistake. Anything that happens they always try to blame someone for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication needs to be way better, POA's have no say in work assignments/load, POA's are overworked and underpaid for the amount of work done, no significant raise unless you are here for three years.

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

    Pros

    It's a great way to meet nice people in your 20s/30s. You learn a lot about cancer care and establish connections with patients. You can't bring work home and are not expected to check your email when you are not at work. They pay for overtime. Great health benefits and plenty of vacation time. Coworkers are helpful.

    Cons

    Doctors can be moody. I would like to be paid more, seems like the managers demand more and more out of us but our pay stays the same. Your raise is based on a 'performance appraisal' which is a scale of 1-5, it is impossible to get 4s or 5s. You work with a lot of people, when certain people are slackers, you end up picking up their work because at the end of the day everything needs to be scheduled for the patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to balance out the work load better.
