    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering as an intern

    Pros

    My coworkers were really nice and willing to help me with anything that I needed. It was also an amazing experience due to all the patients that I was able to interact with and meet.

    Cons

    There was no actual room for growth, it was a pretty cut and dry job in making sure patients were checked in with all necessary forms filled out.

    I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering as an intern

    Pros

    Great and friendly work environment. My coworkers were very sweet. I was able to see some of what Sloan Kettering can do from the research side of it's medicine and was mind blown

    Cons

    It was unpaid, coming to work was pretty expensive for me because I was out of state

    Advice to Management

    Have more programs like this in the future.

    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.
