    Pros

    Employees at all levels and across departments are dedicated to the institutional mission. Interdepartmental respect and cooperation is high. HR is golden- good people.

    Cons

    Technician work has a natural ceiling. Opportunities to laterally transfer into other roles are sparse and ill-defined. They are working on it, but there still isn't much of a career path for technicians growing out of the technician role (and not going on for further education).

    Pros

    Teaching environment that is supportive. Management was never overbearing. Pay was very good. Worked there for over 7 years. Had I nit left NYC, I'm sure I'd still be there.

    Cons

    Nurse patient ratio wasn't always great, but the support staff softened that hardship.
