    Pros

    Great people to work with, great benefits

    Cons

    Middle management isn't watched over enough by the upper crust so your experience will be determined by whether or not you end up with a good manager.
    High stress, burn out and turn over are common.

    Pros

    MSKCC is an organization that makes employees proud. TheiR innovative approach to things old and new is not only extended to patients, but employees on every level as well. MSKCC is an extremely great place to work. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Cons

    It can be emotionally draining seeing the type of disease the organization handles.

    Advice to Management

    Very little to say here, outside of continue to listen to even the most minute grievance expressed by employees.

    Pros

    Loved my coworkers that I became friends with.
    Good first job experience.
    Great if you want to go back to school. Some positions have a lot of flexibility and even a 4 day work week.

    Cons

    After POA or SA, there isn't much room to go up. Practice Leader is all about who you know. You can interview until you are blue in the face, but they still won't hire you, they may hire someone that has 1 yr experience versus your 5. It doesn't make sense. There needs to be clearer expectations and not based on who you know, what fashion you were or how blonde your hair is.

    Pros

    You will work with intelligent, passionate and dedicated people. I had the opportunity to take on various roles outside my specific job responsibility and the ability to grow professionally.

     In addition:
    - great work/life balance
    -many different career opportunities
    -great compensation/benefits

    Cons

    I have no cons. I think every company has things that you work through, this company included, but the pros make up for it.

    Pros

    the benefits are awesome from MSK

    Cons

    there is room to grow, but in some instances it is about who you know.

    Advice to Management

    qualified people are not hired due to a lack of degree which is why the turnaround for POA is so high. maybe consider people that may not have the degree but has the experience needed. after all you do offer tuition reimbursement which may help that person obtain the desired degree.

    Head and Shoulders Above Other Medical Centers How They Treat Staff

    Pros

    You can tell the management sincerely cares about the staff. The staff can actually speak openly about concerns and receive responses from the top. Staff speak openly in Town Halls. MSK doesn't pull sudden mass layoffs with guards escorting employees out. They follow the 3-warnings system to help a lagging employee improve (including training and classes) before a dismissal. You are never yelled at or publicly embarrassed in front of your colleagues. It feels like working at a prestigious university, with educated ,decent people. When a company actually keeps their word and treats all employees with respect, that is huge. I have worked at medical centers which state "no layoffs, you are our Family!" in a Town Hall, then implement "job restructurings" which can't be openly spoken about when you notice your coworkers vanished.

    Cons

    With the honorable way MSK treats their staff, no one leaves (and they don't try to figure out sneaky ways to push out the older workers). So there is no where to advance, no career paths or growth. Pay is on the low end, but they did give a 3% cost of living to everyone this year. And they announced that 3% to all staff with all the details in a transparent broadcast email. Pay is not comparable to other medical centers, but you are also treated much better.

    Advice to Management

    As MSK grows, keep promoting from within first so we can all eventually advance. Can a review be performed of the salaries and living in NYC? Keep up the great work with the new Tri-State locations and the ads on TV and subways sharing our expertise with the public.
