    I have been working at Memorial Sloan Kettering full-time

    Pros

    A hospital that cares about the staff and treats them with dignity. MSK understands that when you do this very simple act, it sets the standard and naturally has the staff also treat patients in the same manner. I personally thank God for getting a job here, especially when I think back at previous jobs at other NYC hospitals and I am not alone. Colleagues that leave MSK with promises of more money and swift career growth soon wish they never left and apply to come back -- some successful, and more not because it's hard to get a position here.

    Cons

    MSK was briefly enamored with the idea that outside crack-the-whip leadership is better. But that seems to have slowed and they realize we, together, can internally raise the bar while retaining our collegial culture.

    Advice to Management

    I am not a real estate expert, but it would be great if MSK could be centrally located at Main Hospital as a Medical Center campus, somehow constructing taller buildings/additional floors to existing, and connecting them with tunnels and skyways. The effort to run patient and employee shuttles all over Manhattan could be eliminated and create a more cohesive patient experience and working environment.

    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.
