    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working in SKI, culture can differ from lab to lab. I had an amazing PI who was always willing to talk and discuss my own growth. As part of a large lab ~20 people, there were some tensions within, but they all got along.

    MSK also has great benefits and a great culture overall.

    Cons

    Like any other entry level job there was a bunch of busy work that had to be done.
