    I worked at Weill Cornell Medical College full-time (more than a 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.

    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.
