    Name Recognition Only

    Clinical Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood benefits, including tuition reimbursement (comparable with other university hospitals). Salary average to below average for NYC. Having the MSKCC name on your resume will open other doors.

    ConsOverall the organization is good to their patients and staff. Unfortunately, there are many departments and sub-departments. If you chose to work there be careful as to where you decide to work. For example, if you see many openings in the Department of Medicine, Clinical Trials Office, it should be a red flag. Upper "administrative" management has little regard for staff, or patients with heavy turnaround as a result. HR and overseeing management turns a blind eye and protects staff that should otherwise be terminated. Chose carefully your next career move.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShielding poor and abusive managers in the long run will fail and ruin the reputation of a good institution with wonderful physicians. Research should be run by physicians and researchers, not business managers with no understanding of clinical research. HR staff and policies should be reviewed to ensure they are appropriate and applied consistently across all employees, including management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
