    Pros

    I work for the pediatrics department and absolutely love it. Management is supportive and encourage everyone to learn new skills.

    Cons

    They need to hire more doctors so that patients can be seen. The only con is getting upset patients that cannot get an appointment.

    Pros

    Good work, good people to work with.

    Cons

    Most projects are infrastructure projects and rather dull. High work load. No where to move up.

    Advice to Management

    The career limitations are part of the nature of the beast. Nothing much they can do, I guess.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership with the current dean, greatly improved research faculty.

    Cons

    There are an unfortunate number of painful bureaucratic inefficiencies. These are slowly but surely being weeded out.

    Pros

    Great place to start and gain clinical research experience, in general it is easy to navigate WCMC's rather large infrastructure.

    Cons

    No training (sink or swim), lack of clear management structure, no room for promotion (next job up is M.D. or Ph.D.).

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to have more of a clear management structure, and also any amount of time with hands-on training.

    Pros

    I've been with WCMC for several years now and while I've had ups and downs, things always end up positive. I work with a great team and a great leader.

    Cons

    Inconsistencies within department implemented policies

    Advice to Management

    Flex schedules and/or working from home are not offered where they could easily be implemented.
