    Pros

    MD Anderson Cancer Center is a grand place to work, lots of professionals just a phone call away, which makes collaboration easy. The benefits are great, the support from within the institution is great - from vaccination clinics to legal advice you can get support for nearly anything from MD Anderson.

    Cons

    The management is too controlling and the environment where I worked at was only interested in publications, not actual progress. Concerns about study design were not taken serious. Also request for cell/tissue services costing as little as 3$ had to be countersigned by 2 officials to be placed. More bureaucracy than need be.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more free reign. As a Cancer Researcher who has worked in several countries prior to coming to the US, I can assure you that this will give better results. Scientists are not worker bees but independent thinkers. The paperwork-load is too much to do on top of doing your research well.

    POPULAR FACILITY,NICE COWORKERS,PTO,FREE MEDICAL HEALTH BENEFITS

    Cons

    DIFFICULT TO ADVANCE AND MOVE UP THE LADDER, TIME TO TRANSFER INCREASED TO ONE YEAR AND TOO MUCH RED TAPE. PAID PARKING IS THE WORST, OTHER FACILITIES PAY FOR PARKING FOR EMPLOYESS

    Advice to Management

    GIVE YOUR POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES A LESS DIFFICULT CHANCE FOR GROWTH, OFFER PAKING INCENTIVE AND STOP TAKING AWAY POSITIVE PERKS.
