    I have been working at SUNY Upstate Medical University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small, so it easy to get around. Has all the basic resources needed to do research. Starting to renovate and adding to the lab space

    Cons

    It is really hard to get the student body to get together and function as a core. It is ever more difficult to try to get faculty to collaborate.

    I have been working at SUNY Upstate Medical University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is small so it is easy to seek help and advice from colleagues and professors.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, time-offs almost impossible depending on lab head. Almost no consideration of the needs of Graduate students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider setting a standard across all departments for mandatory time-offs and take considerations of the students and post docs seriously.

    I worked at SUNY Upstate Medical University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    salary was good, experience with trauma was invaluable. Surgeons were great.

    Cons

    leadership is lacking, and cut throat. Not professional, very little chance for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take some management classes to broaden your old fashioned thinking. Keeping people from growing does not help patients.
