    Please take in the advise of lower level employees, they are the ones who are on the front lines. Their feedback is important to ensure the processes are working.

    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.

    I worked at Memorial Sloan-Kettering as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Had a wonderful mentor who helped me learn the system. Worked with hospital system to manage a doctors schedule. Developed organizational and administrative skills. Everyone was really nice and helpful but worked very hard.

    Cons

    Would have loved some more opportunities to work on my own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

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

    Pros

    I enjoy working here because my fellow employees are hard working, around my age and are a pleasure to work with. Additionally, in less than 2 years, I have received a promotion with a $6 raise from when I first started so it is great to have a place where you can advance.

    Cons

    Be careful to read your contract when signing because the terms can change at any time and you may or may not know it. Example: You may have applied for and had been hired for a 6am-2pm job but your contract may say "subject to change," thus, if the company decides to make a 8am-4pm schedule for that same position, it may now be part of the contract you signed and you may now have to possibly work that schedule although that may not have ever been what you wanted when you first applied for the job.

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan-Kettering full-time

    Pros

    The compensation is fair, but the benefits are fantastic. Health/vision/dental/life insurance is very good, and there are many plans to choose from. Vacation and sick-time policies are better than average.

    Cons

    Long hours are expected, the company culture somewhat assumes you will put the hospital before everything else, like family. HR is working on work-life-balance, but the culture doesn't really allow it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outside of a massive culture shift, I'm not sure what could be done.
