    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at SUNY Downstate Medical Center as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits for some...
    Very helpful personnel at the Research Foundation (phenomenally better than anywhere else in that place)
    Living in New York City (also a negative, see below)

    Cons

    Research is VERY BAD QUALITY
    Management is non existent
    I wouldn't take my dog to this hospital for treatment
    Very high crime rate in the neighbourhood of the hospital/medical school
    If you want to bury your research career go ahead and join Downstate!

    Advice to Management

    Take care of people who actually WORK and get rid of people that just hang out doing nothing...


  2. "Excellent experience."

    Pros

    Multi-faceted environment - working in an academic medical center. Opportunity to work with business, clinical, research, and academic professionals all on the same campus.

    Cons

    Government salaries less than private sector.

    Advice to Management

    More Town Hall meetings would be nice.
