    Pros

    Great city, amazing and intelligent people, so many opportunities to grow and prosper in a college/medical environment. Great benefits for employees. Also part of the 6th best hospital in the country.

    Cons

    As an intern, I was not paid. There are very few/no cons. Obviously, the environment can be a little stressful at times (being in the city and working at a hospital).

    Advice to Management

    Amazing leadership while I was an intern at Cornell. It was easy to tell how cohesive the whole college was (doctors, residents, administration, etc).

    Pros

    Good place to develop your carrer and knowledge. I love to work a city life style and enjoy many cultures

    Not much. Many things going on related to medical research. Public transformation is not convenient. That is only bad thing.

    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 Management

    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.
