    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 Management

    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!

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

    Pros

    The hospital provide good patients care. It has excellent benefit & tuition reimbursement program for employees.

    Cons

    The place is very stressful and competive. You have to play a lot of politics in order to stay out of trouble. Also, it is easy to be written up depending of the manager in charge. Your tast is totally micromanage.

    Advice to Management

    Be less micromanaging!

    Pros

    Good benefits, well reputed name, ability to interact closely with patients, overall great coworkers

    Cons

    typical hospital bureaucracy, sometimes felt like just a number, supervisors relatively disengaged with staff

    Stop treating people like a cog in the machine! Working with sick people means you need to feel supported.

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

    Pros

    Highly team oriented, motivational working environment, down-to-earth coworkers, friendly atmosphere, organized promotional structure with room for growth. This position provides employees with a lot of responsibility which makes the position both challenging and engaging. Hours can be flexible which helps with spacing issues.

    Cons

    There is slight disconnect in the teamwork aspect when working with the mutli-centers at MSKCC, which is something the organization as a whole is working on. Limited space for personal employee desks.

    Advice to Management

    Work on increasing space for employees to better the work environment and create a more organized work space.
