    Awesome benefits and generally a great place to work.

    Opportunity for growth, collaborative environment, practices medicine at a higher level than most institutions, interested in employee and customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    It's a large place and until you have been there a while can be difficult to learn where to go to access resources. They are available, you just have to take the time to learn how to navigate the large system.

    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center part-time

    Pros

    This a real family oriented place. They care about you and everyone is nice here. The people can be sometimes standoffish but it may mean that they're really busy

    Cons

    The fact that full time workers do not have to opportunity to work over time. They have a strict clock in and clock out regimen.

    Advice to Management

    Try making it easier for people to get around besides the sky bridge area. There can be other mobile ways to transport people.
