    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.

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

    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.

  8. Great company, expensive location.

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (more than a 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.

    I am an independent contractor providing services as needed to them. I am still getting jobs from them.

    to work in Texas so I hope that her replacement is as nice as she was!
