    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

    It's a great place to be a part of. You really feel like you are helping people.

    Cons

    No parking for employees. The train is not an option, and parking is very expensive. It's really ridiculous

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees the same. If you give one set of employees parking coupons give all employees parking coupons. Also, if you want us all to feel like no title is better than the other then stop giving title badges. Everyone should have one. Why do RNs, Pts, ect get them. It makes your other employees feel a way.

    Pros

    Great benefits, depending on the department you work for, people work as a team and you get work done. They provide varying programs that look after both the employees and patients alike. They are very "big" on health and wellness. Depending on your job title, they have very flexible job schedules.

    Cons

    Room for growth takes a long time, promotion comes if someone leaves or a new position is created. Some departments can be a bit top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember to listen to your staff in the department. They are the ones who do most of the work that reflects how you manage, and how the entire department looks as a whole.
