    Pros

    The employees are very respectful and extremely helpful. The environment is work demanding but not very stressful. Asking for help and right saves a lot of trouble in future.

    Cons

    Need to be always prepared for challenges and tasks ahead. Work always comes before personal matters. Mistakes are not forgotten.

    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (more than 5 years)

    Amazing coworkers,staff, nurses and physicians, learn numerous skills as responsibilities cross the spectrum, support mission and initiatives

    Long hours; Emails/work sent 24/7; overwhelming workload; lack of mentorship or support from management. Hard work often goes unrecognized

    provide mentorship, provide an opportunity for staff to provide feedback on managers, institution policies should apply to all staff equally, bureaucracy runs rampant with no checks and balances

    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional environment, dedicated and committed employees who go the extra mile, good benefits - tuition reimbursement, focus on team work (strong sense of community), OT pay depending on the department you work in, extra food after meetings (cost savings). Open communication across all work levels.

    Cons

    Long hours, long commute (for me), Tons of meetings to keep everyone in the loop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because MSK is a long commute for some employees, perhaps you should consider providing reduced parking for employees, provide tools to connect employees who are interested in car pooling.

    Pros

    Being a world leader, MSK has an incredible team of individuals. Everyone around you is the best in their field and it creates a fantastic work environment.

    Cons

    The only negative is the salary, they really leverage their name and reputation to attract talent. The compensation they offer recently grads is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to continue to attract top talent, you should bring your salary to something that is competitive with other organizations.
