    Pros

    WCMC is such an amazing environment and people to work with. A high level of professionalism and intelligence, where everyone is always willing to work together.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons for WCMC which is the reason I have been working here for over 7 years. I ideally am looking for a job at WCMC as a research nurse now.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise for management to continue what they have been doing as the environment and work opportunities are always becoming better!

    Pros

    Okay benefits and looks good on resume for future generally speaking

    Cons

    Poor management college does not live up to its name employees gossip with supervisor about you no clear direction from supervisor co workers are not helpful as a new employee basically throw you in there without knowing if you are doing things correctly or not but when you make a mistake they are down your neck lots of "shade" with employees

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate management team not sure if I will continue working with college/NYP

    Pros

    - People here are smart, motivated and dedicated - Facilities are new and well maintained - Subsidized housing for students/postdocs

    Cons

    - Not much support for students/postdocs in terms of career placement, career advice, etc. - Not many extramural facilities that one would find on a typical campus, such as a gym, pool etc. But this campus is in the city, so not unexpected

    Pros

    I work for the pediatrics department and absolutely love it. Management is supportive and encourage everyone to learn new skills.

    Cons

    They need to hire more doctors so that patients can be seen. The only con is getting upset patients that cannot get an appointment.

    Pros

    Good work, good people to work with.

    Cons

    Most projects are infrastructure projects and rather dull. High work load. No where to move up.

    Advice to Management

    The career limitations are part of the nature of the beast. Nothing much they can do, I guess.
