    Pros

    Provide plenty of vacation time.

    Cons

    The department was run like a boys club. Incredibly low salaries despite being located in NYC. Career plans are mostly lip service.

    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Top of the line medical research, well funded, and state of the art facilities. Great collaboration with Sloan-Kettering and Rockefeller University. Great benefits and productive environment.

    Cons

    Hard to change positions and grow into something bigger as it is a science academic environment. The departments are confusing and sometimes poses issues with getting things done regarding human resource issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions in the scientific end should be easier and should be streamlined with a layer out plan. But as in science, it is all based on grant money so I am not sure what could be done to improve this.

    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time

    Pros

    The management is absolutely the best. they are personable, engaged and very invested in teaching and leading their team to better each employee's performance.

    The work environment is great, the employees are friendly and all are very supportive.

    Cons

    Promotions are painstakingly slow. But that's also due to incredibly low turnover rates. (double edged sword)

    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work Life Balance, although depending on your supervisor, this might change.

    Cons

    Hire highly inexperienced people, and even though there's a 3 month review period, they just keep them even though they don't deliver, or even know what they're doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please advance and hire educated, knowledgeable people in the field, not only people who are comfortable working and being mediocre, who just are there for many years, and thus deserve to go up.
    Keep up with the latest trends to be able to tell if your crew is really trying or educating themselves in them.

    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and paid unused vacation days. I had a great supervisor who was very understanding when I needed to take time off for family problems. Great medical environment. The students and faculty members were generally very nice.

    Cons

    It was hard to change positions to one with more responsibility and even movement laterally at WCMC was tough. Administration was slow to process any paperwork.
