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 worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits and discounts, work hours ok

    Cons

    Very bad work environment, organization and communication problems within management trickle down to lower level creating lots of chaos, PIs act as managers without any managerial skills whatsoever, management/PIs use negative reinforcement to "motivate" employees, no growth opportunities foreseeable.

    Advice to Management

    Use positive reinforcement with employees, at least once in a while. Listen to employee needs.
