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

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth
    Good benefits: medical/dental/vision, 403b retirement, tuition reimbursement (better than most employers would give)
    Constant discoveries are being made - glad to be apart of a working goal to cure cancer
    Great working team
    Great environment
    Discounts
    Recognition for work done

    Cons

    Too much micromanaging
    Could be better communication between the different departments
    Hierarchy system

    Advice to Management

    Lower management/assistants are the eyes and ears of the company. Many issues can be resolved with the knowledge we have rather than have multiple meetings attempting to resolve, only causing additional issues.

    Pros

    Pay is great, Low Stress, Tons of Interesting Projects, Cutting Edge Research

    Cons

    Too compartmentalize. For special projects, don't know who in another department to ask to get my project done.

    Advice to Management

    Good job most of the time. But sometimes Upper Management Need to understand the big picture, You can't tell your staff "Just finish this project, Don't ask me questions because I don't know myself, Just let me know when it is done the way I wanted it." sorry I am not a mind reader.

    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Flexible work from home hours. Training for employees was always offered. Good work life balance. Support inter-department movements. Good pay for the work expected.

    Cons

    Slow pace. Very bureaucratic. Hard to change existing processes or systems. Slow to adapt new technology (on the non-medical side).

    Advice to Management

    Need to setup an environment where more experimentation is possible. Not much room for promotions or to take on different responsibilities within an existing job.

    ""A Wonderful Place to Work""

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Clinical Dietitian in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Clinical Dietitian in New York, NY

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High quality MDs and RNs with magnet status; numerous internal lectures, grand rounds, nutrition conference to attend as time permits; growing opportunities as more satellite centers open (one dietitian hired per center); more resources than other institutions (e.g.we develop & publish our own patient education materials, have our own medical library, patients have a recreation area where they can do crafts and attend special events etc.). Clinical dietitian ladders recently approved, so there is some opportunity for growth, but too early to offer a judgment as to its success. Overall a great place to work, despite caveats below.

    Cons

    Census always seems to be over capacity and patient acuity has risen with shift to outpatient centers for treatment & less complex surgeries, so it can get very busy/stressful & difficult to keep up with new admissions & follow-up of existing patients. Dietitians are unit-based & don't get a chance to change assignments unless someone leaves, so work can get repetitious (unless you are in a relief position, where your floor assignment is constantly changing) as the floors are arranged by service/diagnosis, although there are many that prefer to remain on their same floor. The dietitians cover all patients except for those on TPN, they are followed by GI/Nutrition MDs & NPs. Difficult to find affordable housing in Manhattan at dietitian level salary (& dietitians not eligible for more affordable hospital housing), therefore, many dietitians commute from outer boroughs, Westchester or New Jersey & commuting to NYC is not fun. When I started the benefits were great & the salary was low. Now the salary is competitive, but budgets seem to get tighter every year & health insurance keeps getting more expensive, but those are universal issues.
