    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

    camaraderie with other coworkers interested in the same goal of patient care, excellent benefits, flexibility to work from home, good management

    Cons

    can be very demanding work, lot of deadlines, emails and stress

    Advice to Management

    more information on advancement opportunities and transparency about salary increases. not every employee wants to stay at same level for 10 years and should be more promotional opportunities


  3. Amazing place for doing your postdoc

    Pros

    Vibrant academic atmosphere. Top notch science. Very friendly community of postdocs. Excellent benefits. Located in exciting science intersection in NYC; with Rockefeller and Cornell across the street, collaborations are easy and fluid. Great mentors. High profiled scientists visit often to present their work.

    Cons

    Very competitive environment; pressure often builds up, which can actually be a good thing.

    Pros

    New hires gain centralized training focusing on systems use and office workflow as well as assigned mentors to help ease the transition into the role. It is a great role for individuals interested in healthcare administration or a clinical path as you are exposed to both sides as a POA.

    Cons

    The POA growth track is narrow for those hoping for a healthcare administration role within the department since there are very limited Physician Office Specialist, Administrative Coordinator or Administrative Manager openings. POAs hoping to stay within MSK should think about moving to outside departments after the 1-2 year committment is completed.

    Pros

    Excellent hospital/clinical providers. Great for clinical staff - difficult for admin staff.

    Cons

    Too large too fast. Admin infrastructure can not sustain unchecked growth.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your knowledgeable resources.
