    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at MSK for 5 years. I recently relocated and have discovered there is no place like MSK. I was able to grow within the institution - it's not easy but if you work hard and make that known to a number of people, it will help you when applying for a promotion or new role. Each time I applied for a new role I had colleagues that personally reached out to hiring managers on my behalf because they believed in me that much. The benefits and vacation time is also great. There is also an option to work from home partially for a lot of roles. The work/life balance is also great. Of course, it depends upon who your manager is but I was always very lucky to have kind, supporting, and understanding managers. I feel very lucky to have worked here and gained the experience I have which will stay with me throughout my career.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work- employees remain motivated when they feel valued.

    Pros

    The dedication and team approach is amazing. There is a lot of opportunities to learn and grow internally. It's a large organization so you have plenty of choices to move around.

    Cons

    The admin support can be limited which makes the workload difficult. Also there is a lot of work that takes place in a short period of time - so the pressure to perform can be intense.

    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
