    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!

    Pros

    World class organization, providing excellent state of the art care for patients. I have been at two other very good hospitals. By far this one is the best in regard to the staff caring for patients as well as other employees. From CEO to HR I have only great things to say about this place in the year I have been here. So happy I came here.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to see such sick patients, but on other hand inspiring when you see one leave with positive prognosis.

    Pros

    Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is an amazing place that I would love to work at post graduation.

    Cons

    I do not dislike anything about Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I look forward to moving out of Queens into Manhattan so my morning commute is easier.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    They are all about the money. You have to call patients and ask for the money up front otherwise no treatment.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good salary. Helping very sick patients.

    Cons

    Calling patients with poor insurance and asking for the money up front, $15,000 is a lot

    Advice to Management

    Be more concerned about your patients and staff and less concerned with your bonuses.

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering

    Pros

    The company has a good name and had great health benefits, pay and vacation time.

    Cons

    Poor management, unwillingness to promote from within. Extremely political environment.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and respect between management and employees is essential to the success of a department. Listen to the concerns of those who are knowledge about their area of expertise and don't be placated by yes men.
