    Pros

    A great place to do science with the tri-institutional collaborations. It provides lots of opportunities to interact with good scientists and start collaborations.

    Great neighborhood to live in.

    Very good daycare at affordable price. I appreciated that Dr. Laurie Glimcher helped to set up the daycare for the employees. She has brought many good changes and she genuinely cares about the employees.

    Good benefits for graduate students.

    Cons

    There was not a strong sense of community at least when I was there three years ago. More could have been done to earn loyalty from the employees. It's a big institute. Try to cut down the bureaucracy and focus on doing good science.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Provide better benefits to the postdocs.

  11. Good opportunities await...

    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College

    Pros

    The opportunity to work in a diverse environment with access to sister-institutions and other academic environments. Room for growth in administrative areas and opportunites for promotion in scientific approaches.

    Cons

    Difficulties in meeting common ground between administrative and scientific needs. Scienfitic workplaces are not always conducive to work flow and all positions are always in jeopardy of grant non-renewal.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified individuals and allow them to jo their job. You'll find that they take their position to heart and will support and honor their commitments.
