    I worked at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Roswell is a respected institute with high standards of care for its patients. A vigorous academic institution. Tons of seminars with productive criticism. Endless opportunities to collaborate and highly advanced core facilities.

    Cons

    Not a con of the Institute, but research positions are grant based and therefore never a stable line of employment.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if there was a program to groom upper level research staff for management positions.

    Current Employee - Director of Neuroradiology

    I have been working at Roswell Park Cancer Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated subspecialty work, Modern Equipment, Supportive department chair

    Cons

    Political issues in the department, too many state imposed restrictions, poor physician control of support services in the department

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more reasonable path to hiring additional physicians. Combine Radiology RVU for reimbursement assessment along subspecialty lines and divide by number of radiologists
