    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering

    Pros

    Great benefits; driven coworkers that bring the best out of you; and many opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    As a very large organization, it is a bit intimidating at first. I came in as an RSA and eventually found my stride in the clinical practice plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was always treated very well for my hard work. I don't have anything negative to say. Please continue to hold job fairs for folks in upstate NY (like me) to find wonderful opportunities at MSKCC!

    Former Employee - Administrative Secretary in New York, NY

    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional environment, dedicated and committed employees who go the extra mile, good benefits - tuition reimbursement, focus on team work (strong sense of community), OT pay depending on the department you work in, extra food after meetings (cost savings). Open communication across all work levels.

    Cons

    Long hours, long commute (for me), Tons of meetings to keep everyone in the loop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because MSK is a long commute for some employees, perhaps you should consider providing reduced parking for employees, provide tools to connect employees who are interested in car pooling.

    Pros

    Being a world leader, MSK has an incredible team of individuals. Everyone around you is the best in their field and it creates a fantastic work environment.

    Cons

    The only negative is the salary, they really leverage their name and reputation to attract talent. The compensation they offer recently grads is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to continue to attract top talent, you should bring your salary to something that is competitive with other organizations.

    Pros

    Great team of staff. In Manhattan and close to highways and reliable public transportation.

    Cons

    Low pay. The full time work week is 37.5 hours and not 40. No paid lunches, no vision plan, cheap dental plans. Vacation is limited and no Union. There is a lot of "hype" associated with working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to organize better to get more staff.

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering

    Pros

    Even though my position is one of the most basic that the hospital offers, I am treated like a valued member of the team and encouraged to grow, whether through advancement into management positions in my current department or observation of and movement into other departments. MSK wants to keep it's employees and is doing a great job of offering a lifelong career path.

    Cons

    Shift hours in my position can cause some issues in coordinating my life outside of MSK. However, this is remedied by my very flexible management team if advance notice is given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Keep listening to team members and allowing the wonderful staff to provide a great experience for new employees!
