Employee Review

  1. 1.0
    Former Employee

    Worst place to work. Ever.. Hands down.

    Pros

    Very few. I suppose the feeling of helping patients is about the only pro to working here.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Horrible pay, no room for growth, internal politics and red tape is out of control; ridiculous requests by upper management (have you ever been asked to write a 3 paragraph email in detail about why a broken projector didn't work? Didn't think so. Management is not understanding that technology breaks down occasionally) racist hiring policies; you can get in trouble for being 1 minute late, you can get in trouble for taking 1 sick day even if you have maxed out your sick hours; when hurricane Sandy hit we were all forced to use vacation days even though the MTA, bridges, tunnels, ferries, etc. were all shut down and 99% of employees couldn't make it into work. Not sure how that constitutes as "vacation" time when NYC was in a state of emergency. When complaints were filed, the only response was "people lost their homes - don't complain about losing vacation time" - even though it can easy take 1.5 months to earn 1 vacation day. Therefore, in theory months and months of saving up for even 4 vacation days were completely wasted during the storm, which I found really unfair and unecessary. Cornell, for instance, did not dock their employees time during those days. Why was MSKCC so strict about people literally not being able to make it into work?
