    Good experience on the research arm of the institution, but my PI had adequate funding for my entire appointment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsAs a research appointment, there is a strong motivation being housed in the hospital with exposure to patients and their families. The core facilities (sequencing, histology, vet med) are all top notch. The compliance and grant offices are responsive to questions and willing to help.

    ConsDepartmental support is variable. Adequate external funding is a must for continued work. Neither of these are isolated to MDACC, but both do occur here.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Summer College Student Research

    Student (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood working environment - all other employees I've encountered were helpful and courteous.
    Nice facilities - large hospital, but well maintained, organized, and has a modern feel.

    ConsApplication processing time - took about a month after I had been approved.
    Parking - not terrible; but many options aren't close (although there are shuttles)
