    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, better pay than most hospitals, amazingly capable and driven colleagues.

    Cons

    On the clinical trials side, an errant tendency to promote based off time on the job within MSK rather than merit. Results in losing quality team members who want to professionally develop at a more rapid pace.

    Advice to Management

    The clinical trials office should relax its rigid promotion and compensation structure in order to retain the very best employees.
