    There are good benefits, the presence of the Health System in NYC has been expanding and may open doors to further career opportunities within the Organization.

    I worked at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) part-time

    Pros

    The doctors I was privileged to work alongside treated everyone with respect, care and understanding. They defended and did their best to protect their researchers from the malignant practices of the administration.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I had a difficult time working with the lower administration of my department and higher administration within the hospital. Upon consulting the HR department about these difficulties, I found that they had been long term friends with my department's administration. As a result, HR did not work to repair the claims my coworkers and I made regarding misconduct, toxic work environment and sexual harassment. One of my coworkers was fired after being maligned by our boss who feared being reported. I lost much sleep working at this institution for the way that they handled our situation. Would we not have been so emotionally scarred, this behavior would have warranted a law suit.

    I have been working at Mount Sinai Hospital (New York) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great research environment and exciting location in Manhattan. There are a wealth of scientific resources at Mount Sinai and the post-doc community is very strong there. Further, there are so many other research institutions in the city that you feel constantly surrounded by the latest developments in biology and medicine.

    There are solid benefits (although health insurance in general has been getting worse for everybody). There is discounted housing for post-docs available close to the hospital and in the Upper East Side which is a major plus so that you don't have to live in the Bronx or Queens and commute in. The housing is available for up to three years.

    Cons

    The salary range is still low for living in Manhattan. As a postdoc, expect "subsidized housing" to cost at least 1400 a month for a shoebox and 1700 a month for a breathable studio. Prices are generally more for larger apartments and those are reserved for families or people who agree to share apartments. Accept that you won't be saving much money during this chapter in your life.

    Advice to Management

    The cost of subsidized housing has gone up considerably in the last few years. This can be really difficult to manage for young professionals who want to live comfortably.
