    Pros

    MSKCC prides itself on hiring the best. You are constantly learning, and wanting to do better because the people you work with are bright and motivated. There is also a lot of emphasis put on work life balance, with great internal seminars, as well as flexible work arrangements (ie telecommuting, flexible hours, etc). I have never worked at an institution with such a high retention rate, which says a lot about MSK!

    Cons

    There are several facilities which are brand new, and if you are lucky enough to work in those offices, terrific! However, other off campus offices leave much to be desired. Buildings are old, with no windows. Be sure to ask about your workstation before you start!

    -Their research environment has adopted the pace of the rest of Manhattan which makes it more exciting than more rural locations

    The hospital has amazing opportunities to move up if the medical field is where you'd like to work at.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefit. The staffs were mostly polite and professional. Great working hours and environment. Great food served in the cafe.

    Please take employees' complaints seriously.
