Doesn't Recommend
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...
