    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great colleagues, excellent benefits, active effort to make employees happy by upper management

    Cons

    middle management likes the status quo, garage parking is costly, work can be emotionally draining if you deal with patients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more attention to the emotional toll the work can take on employees from seeing so many sick patients, develop a program to deal with this besides employee assistance, which is worthless.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a research assistant, MD Anderson had good working hours and a great environment among coworkers. Most of the employees are more than competent and function as a single unit despite its enormous size, which makes doing your job easier and more enjoyable.

    Cons

    While most of the doctors and scientists were perfectly friendly, some had either too big of egos or no management skills which made it difficult dealing with them.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great community
    HR is awesome!
    Amazing coworkers!

    Cons

    Parking is awful. The commute to the Texas Medical Center in itself its crazy though, so it really is not a huge concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While working as an intern, I would have loved to have the opportunity to meet more people other than the office staff. I think providing these networking opportunities to students will bring them back when they graduate!

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    The Work-Life Balance was pretty optimal. My boss was personally fantastic, and I was allowed to choose my own research in a way.

    Cons

    The compensation could have been better. Some people in the program were simply used as free labor.
