    Pros

    The IT Dept is a great place to learn and grow. People are helpful and open with information. Will help you to find your niche. Do not overwork you in terms of hours. Overall a supportive environment where you can choose to learn the ins and outs of multiple disciplines. Managers are very accessible, with an open door policy.

    Cons

    Rigid start and end times on daily hours. Don't have a work from policy. Some amount of micromanaging from some managers.

    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic, including back up child care

    Cons

    HR does not monitor departments well that have a high turnover and not until after being terminated did they institute a new memorandum on updated policies for pregnant workers. Annual reviews are horrendous very disappointed in the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise annual review procedures, they do not currently reflect the effectiveness of the employee as a whole.

    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time

    Pros

    The medical, dental, eye care vision package along with the 401k benefits are fantastic. Vacation/personal/sick days are also a generous package. Weill Cornell is a well-respected institution in medicine and education with very smart passionate individuals.

    Cons

    It is hard to advance to new position and there is not very much room for growth. While the benefits are great, the annual increases are tiny.
