Interact with patient on a daily basis is very pleasant. team work environment. The hardest part of the job is getting attached to patients and they pass away. I have learned how to assist with bone marrows, how to order certain test for sent outs.

SENIOR PATIENT COORDINATOR (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 26, 2018
It's way too obvious that WCMC cares more about money than actual care of patients. The doctors seem overworked, the management usually doesn't care about staff. No real opportunity for advancement. Monotonous work.

Good place, hard work
PhD Candidate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 23, 2018
I attended the Weill Cornell Graduate School for Medical Sciences for my PhD in the Physiology, Biophysics, and Systems Biology Program. It's been a lot of hard work and some trying times, but I am on the verge of finishing. The stipend is great, and the subsidized housing is also a plus. There's a lot of smart people, a lot of egotistical people, and a lot of hard workers. Very driven place to work.
Pros
Great people, a lot of opportunities
Cons
Some not-great people, high cost of living in NY

MEDICAL ASSISTANT/SCAN TECH ASST/PHLEB0T0MIST (Former Employee) –  68th St. and york AveJuly 23, 2018
Great hospital. Doctors overbooking, fast paced and people not working as a team. good benefits and yearly raises. Co-workers always on there phones and I found co-workers unteachable. Hospital was not the way it was in 2001 when I worked there.

Productive and start to professional experience
Administrative Program Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 19, 2018
I found the institution to be very profound. I do believe that managers and supervisors should be trained to work with the staff in a manner that does not instill fear. There are several opportunities but advancing and dealing with the opposition of higher up's not allowing you to feel needed will surely alter work productivity. This is an amazing instituion but there are surly internal factors that need to be addressed.

Positive environment but lack of advancement
Financial Planning Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 11, 2018
A typical day at work involves an analysis that is given to you that day, and due before end of day. The analysis will involve creating some type of report on a provider or practice on revenue, expenses, productivity, etc. It needs to meet certain high expectations and will often change throughout the day. There are also the longer type projects such as modeling, budgeting, and forecasts, and these are expected to be completed in tandem with the urgent requests. This type of fast-paced, multi-tasking environment is where I thrive. However, as of late, I feel there is a lack of advancement and "supply" to meet the demand within the workforce. There is high competition and not enough opportunity to go around. It is also an outdated work culture, as it is healthcare, and is a lagging in keeping up with other NYC workplace cultures. The hardest part of the job is the tight deadlines, the most enjoyable part is the people.
Pros
Flexible, Great people, Good Benefits
Cons
Lack of career advancement, stressful

Great place to work, but...
Administrator (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 5, 2018
Each department is different, but overall, Weill Cornell Medicine is a great place to work and has good benefits. The only downfall is compensation. I can't speak for all departments, but from interacting with a variety of individuals at other institutions, the compensation at Cornell overall is lower than competitors (specifically Mount Sinai, MSK, and NYU). In addition, the institution decreased their annual increases for staff to a max of 2% this year (2018).

Senior Medical Secretary (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 29, 2018
A typical day at work includes checking in/out patients, verifying insurances, scheduling both office visits and O.R. procedures, precerting radiology, surgical, and in office procedures, also checking daily messages via Epic system as well as outlook messages, maintaining the physician's administrative schedule, rescheduling and confirming apponitments, and scanning medical records.

The hardest part of the job is fitting in emergency patients when the schedule is booked solid .

The most enjoyable part is completing tasks and meeting the needs of patients.
Pros
benefits
Cons
Not enough Hours per week

Weill Cornell Medicine is a really great place to work. Everyone is looking to be part of a team and to help one another. Management is always looking out for their staff and how best to grow their skillset.

If you are Family First 9-5 This is the place for you.
Sr. Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 11, 2018
If you are Family First 9-5 This is the place for you. Great work Life balance, excellent benefits. But not a place to move fast and grow.

There is a very conservative culture here in terms of making change and doing interesting innovative things.

So if you are looking to make a change and improve things, you will find yourself slammed against a wall of Bureaucracy. If you try the techniques of 5 Why's you will always run into "it is the policy" with no understanding of why the policy exists, or where the policy is documented.

That being said, this is an incredibly ethical organization with kind people. There is not a lot of back stabbing.
Pros
9 to 5 strictly observed

Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 8, 2018
Great place to cut your teeth but is not invested in personal growth or professional development for entry-level staff. Hires overqualified candidates for positions that need minimal skills.
