    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time

    Pros

    - Good opportunity to get your foot in the door - Affiliation with other big institutes like MSKCC, NYP, RU

    Cons

    For this specific position: - Most workers are uneducated and unprofessional (extremely unprofessional environment - it was shocking for me, I had never heard the n-word more in my life than in the break room) - The salary is not very good for such a labor intensive position - Animal care tech leads and managers tend to talk down to the other employees - * NECESSARY/PROPER TRAINING IS NOT PROVIDED BY MANAGEMENT* (this was a big one for me, as I was responsible for cleaning multiple heavy machinery and never got properly trained on how to do so. I asked management 5 times for additional training and was not provided it because the manager/lead never set aside any time. On my sheet of requirements, it stated that training would be provided and that additional training would also be provided if asked for. I injured myself multiple times trying to do my job correctly and eventually I felt that I was being set up for failure and even targeted by my manager which led to me parting ways with the company) - Employees are constantly watched as if they are under a microscope: no matter how hard you work/complete your assignments, you will be spoken to if someone in management passes by and sees you standing there for a second - The working conditions are not very good (if you're on the clean side, it is extremely hot and humid, and you might burn yourself with items that come out of the autoclave machines; the dirty side has a lot of dust from dirty cages and bedding being dumped; very unsanitary and jail-like conditions. - Extremely early shifts (5am, 6am, or 7am) and forced "voluntary" overtime

    Advice to Management

    You need to provide real training to your employees and be realistic about what one person can do in the work place. Talking down to employees will not make them work harder, and neither will treating people as if they are in high school.

    I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good community within the department. Able to take part in innovative clinical research projects and interact with patients on a daily basis. The $5K tuition reimbursement towards a degree or career related class is a sweet deal.

    Cons

    There's not much of a community atmosphere created by WCMC itself. No work related perks to build interactions between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Please sponsor more programs for workers to connect. And if there already is, please advertise better.

    Pros

    Okay benefits and looks good on resume for future generally speaking

    Cons

    Poor management college does not live up to its name employees gossip with supervisor about you no clear direction from supervisor co workers are not helpful as a new employee basically throw you in there without knowing if you are doing things correctly or not but when you make a mistake they are down your neck lots of "shade" with employees

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate management team not sure if I will continue working with college/NYP

    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.
