  1.  

    Overall a great experience.

    I have been working at MD Anderson

    Pros

    I've gained a tremendous amount of experience and met some great people. The core values and the attitude of most of the employees is a huge plus. The flex schedules are also helpful. Great benefits.

    Cons

    The politics and resistance to change are ridiculous. The HR department is also not very effective. A lot of ineffective people have been brought in for jobs while qualified people have been turned down on minor technicalities. Also, they do not deal with "problem children" very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rewarding bad behavior and poor performance. Give management more control over who they hire rather than relying on ineffective computer-based "assessments".

    I have been working at MD Anderson as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Contracting pays well and the stress compared to other places is little to none.

    Cons

    For contractors, you have to hope funding comes in for your project to stay on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher contractors as full-time employees.
