    micromanaged if in a lower level position

    Pros

    I am an independent contractor providing services as needed to them. I am still getting jobs from them.
    They have always been wonderful with me and my company and associates that show up to perform the services.

    I have no cons to report other than the lady that I worked for for the last 20 odd years has just left
    to work in Texas so I hope that her replacement is as nice as she was!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please carry on the great footsteps of the lady that I worked for at Sloan Kettering!

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

    Pros

    great benefits , work life initiatives, tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    I can only comment on the department I work in. We have had 7 employees quit or move on in the 2 years I have been here. Management in the department of medicine is atrocious - no accountability for when managers do something wrong or make a mistake. Anything that happens they always try to blame someone for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication needs to be way better, POA's have no say in work assignments/load, POA's are overworked and underpaid for the amount of work done, no significant raise unless you are here for three years.

    Pros

    There is an overall very professional atmosphere here at MSK. There is constant encouragement of individual career advancement.

    Cons

    I suppose that with many organizations there exists some level of bureaucracy, and this institution has some of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have faith in your employees. Go easy on the micro-managing.
