Pretty generous place that treats people well
Great health insurance, subsidized housing.
The Rockefeller University offers a very comprehensive health insurance package for students. This is enhancing the overall employee experience at the institution.
Rockefeller uses a third party administrator (Trustmark) for its health insurance. Trustmark has some of the most unhelpful and incompetent people I have ever had to deal with. Claims that are supposed to be covered are repeatedly denied and you end up having to make 4 phone calls in order to have it resolved. Customer service reps either don't know what they are talking about, or tell you what you want to hear in order to get you off the phone. Unfortunately, Rockefeller uses the third party administrator to save themselves money, but they don't realize how much work they are creating for the employees who have to deal with them. I am the only one using the Rockefeller plan in my family. I can't imagine dealing with this for my three children as well. It would be a full time job. Additionally, if you already have doctors you are loyal to, it may be difficult to continue seeing them under Rockefeller's insurance plan. When you call to notify your doctor about your new insurance, odds are they've never heard of Trustmark and will no longer see you. Even though you can supposedly see Aetna doctors, providers don't want to deal with Trustmark. What Rockefeller doesn't tell you before starting is that you basically have to see doctors from Weill Cornell. If you see anyone outside the Weill Cornell network, you run the risk of getting a big bill, and then arguing with Trustmark in order to get them to pay it. Who has time for that? After two years of dealing with this, I'll be dropping Rockefeller's insurance at the end of this year. I'll be paying 50% more under my wife's plan, but at least I won't have to deal with endless phone calls, big bills, and general incompetence of the third party administrator. I can't imagine ending up in the hospital with this kind of coverage. The bills would be astronomical and the phone calls never ending. It's just not worth it.

This may sound crazy, but does anyone else not love summer break? I enjoy my work. It gives me purpose. Sure, we plan and do things over summer, but I find the constant pressure of finding constructive things to do day to day increases my anxiety. Give me two weeks like winter break and let’s get back to it 🤷♂️
