    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.

    I have been working at Roswell Park Cancer Institute full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    great benefits, overtime you will likely outperform private business due to Cost of living and performance raises, protection via union, pension.

    Cons

    pay can be lacking compared to other places on starting, a career path isn't easy to find. Place can be meeting hell.. lets have a meeting to discuss where to put a button!!.. ah..no

    Advice to Management

    More managers need to trust their employees, instead of micromanaging them to pieces. Management buckles under presser by End Users too much, for the "sweet sweet" feedback.
