Pros
Cons
  • Last but not least there is no room for growth unless you work in administration or at the Main campus in NY (in 16 reviews)

  • Base post doc salary with no experience is 50K, which does not really defray the high cost of living in New York (in 12 reviews)

    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time

    Pros

    When I came to MSK, I had heard from so many people that MSK was amazing and I thought I'd for sure be disappointed; people had hyped it up to me so much. 3+ years later and I am still consistently surprised by the positive impact MSK makes on other people's lives and my life every single day. When I come to work, I am expected to give 110%. That's hard and some days are better than others, but it's so rewarding to work so hard and know that I'm not only refining my skills and getting better at my job, but that I am making life better for patients, their families and/or caregivers and the people around them.

    Cons

    I think that there could be stronger leadership at the supervisor/manager level at MSK.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is so nice and keeps the goal at heart.

    Cons

    They undermine positions by giving them menial names which can hurt the process of moving up to other positions. You can be labeled a Secretary doing strictly research Admin work.
