    Pros

    MSKCC has excellent benefits and work life balance.
    New York is a great city to live if you have a competitive salary
    MSKCC is world renoun

    Cons

    In such a large organization fiefdoms can exist which cut managers off from independent oversight leading to some bad eggs creating poor work environments and little room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    PI oversight is hard to manage at any organization but there needs to be more of an effort on MSKCC's part to uncover hidden talents inside the organization
