    Former Employee - Data Control Assistant in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Had opportunities to network with professionals from multiple nearby hospitals (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Hospital for Special Surgery, and of course New York-Presbyterian), as well as within the WCMC community itself. Beautiful facilities and excellent support staff. Pay was not great, but the experience was valuable. Excellent benefits to see Cornell physicians.

    Cons

    This was not a position that would lead to growth within the company; that being said, it was a great jumping off point for graduate school in health sciences and would have been a good start for medical school as well.

    Pros

    The camaraderie has been wonderful. It gives you a reason to go in to work everyday. In my department they really care about their employees.

    Cons

    Some departments do not get enough funding despite all the money they make. With the amount of time and work done in these departments it would be helpful for the workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fund all the research departments in women's health.

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

    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

    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 (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.
