    I have been working at Memorial Sloan-Kettering full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people who work here know that they are working for a cancer center which gives a sense of pride in the institution. This translates into a work environment that is friendly and self driven. Memorial is also very good to their employees with top notch benefits like tuition reimbursement and adoption assistance on top of the standard benefits of health insurance and retirement.

    Cons

    It's in New York City so everything around it is expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Memorial Sloan-Kettering (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and compensation, helping patients in large and small ways, availability of resources and development

    Cons

    Most leaders in place too long, growing too fast - not helping staff adjust, not enough succession planning throughout the institution, mentality of being half the size makes them not realistic regarding many employee work/life issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach

    Great company, expensive location.

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