      Pros

      Great coworkers, everyone is passionate about the department's missions and wants to do good work. Great work life balance.

      Cons

      No remote work. Management requires you to come in during blizzards (not sure if this has changed with the pandemic). The organization lacks sustainable projects which tend to be well meaning but misdirected. A LOT of nepotism.

      Good job if you want summers off and the same holidays off as your kids.

      Pros

      The vast majority of people who I've worked with have been great. People are especially working tirelessly during the pandemic. I've had a few good managers. It's nice to work within an environment where people have a shared sense of purpose in advancing health equity. Gotham Center is a nice building to work in.

      Cons

      Bureaucracy is pretty thick, and makes it slow to get things done. There have been a few people who haven't been the best to work with.
