Company culture

Company culture was "do as I say". Very little autonomy. "Autonomy" was proclaimed by Senior Administration as being something they asked for, encouraged, and rewarded however it was squelched consistently. You were TOLD what to do and, heaven help you if you did not comply.

Support from Management

Senior Management lacked communication skills in a big way. There was no encouragement to develop any new areas of opportunity or practice outside the science realm because, well, "we're Sloan Kettering! We are the best already!" Senior Management intimidated and manipulated staff by requiring that you jump when they called, never question what they told you to do, and they outwardly discouraged individualism. Sloan offers no formal Management training. My Management training consisted of being told to "ask other staff members at your job level if you have any questions about what to do". However, when I did ask other staff members at my level for assistance, they were summarily reluctant to offer any advice/support. They did, however, go to the Senior Hospital Administration and inform that person that a question was asked about how to proceed with a problem and that Administrator used that inquiry as a negative strike against me in my next Annual Evaluation.

Workplace Safety

I thought that this was going to be a good place to work. The orientation was wonderful. The promise of a future with this company was what I prized above all. I'm retired and I needed a new direction and I was encouraged to be employed at MSKCC.
But my experience was not a good one. After orientation the good will evaporated. The bosses that I worked for are not professional and this is reflected in the lack of respect and pettiness that I and others experienced.
I worked in Environmental.
I would say that if you are a patient it is a good place to be.
