  • Last but not least there is no room for growth unless you work in administration or at the Main campus in NY (in 16 reviews)

  • Base post doc salary with no experience is 50K, which does not really defray the high cost of living in New York (in 12 reviews)

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    403b and match; subsidized housing for faculty. Generally positive and helpful staff. Location and accessibility to mass transit. Tuition for dependents of faculty.

    Cons

    Tremendous amount of red tape, bureaucracy, and in some cases duplication of efforts. Insufficient space for research labs; clearly not a "chronic NYC problem" as some administrators would leave you to believe because other area research centers are not nearly as congested or pressed for space. Clinical volume appears to be waning. Personalities and egos at the highest levels of management beginning to negatively impact aspects of the center.

    Advice to Management

    MSKCC's position as a world leader in oncology is far from guaranteed. Times are changing and the institution is demonstrating itself to be less than completely agile. There are warning signs that troubled times are ahead.

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and raises every year as opposed to other hospitals. Great insurance, 4 weeks plus federal holidays off for the department I am in- Also, $12,000 per year in tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Little opportunity to "move up", from clinical settings to administrative or research settings- Ofcourse this is relative to your education and department you work in, but for the most part, if you were hired in a certain area, very hard to break out into a different area because that is all you are seen as....

    Advice to Management

    Help those who want to get into leadership but have no titles or position to do so.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good hospital mission, flexible co-workers, work well as a team to make schedules and get the job done.

    Cons

    Not too many cons. The labs are smaller and more outdated than I would have expected but MSK is forever growing and opening a brand new, state of the art lab that is in the works. Looks amazing so far.
