    Pros

    The atmosphere in the system is that of a team where everyone can work in a collaborative fashion without much, if any, struggle.

    Cons

    The only downsides to the hospital would relate to it's large size, so getting around on foot takes effort, but if you know your way and use the shuttles, getting here and there is simple.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    A world class cancer research facility with leading edge technologies. Great people, and very good work /life balance. Middle management does try to meet the expectations of the extremely diverse workforce.

    Cons

    Excessive political correctness, one must be very careful during casual conversations not to say anything that might be taken in the wrong context. In some cases, departmental meetings are not well structured, no process check, items brought up not on agenda.and outside the scope of the meeting. When assigned to work on special projects, very seldom were clear objectives set with defined dates for specific milestones. Projects tended to be open ended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to communicate more frequently with classified employees. I never once observed anyone from senior management personally attend a division level employee meeting. There needs to be more focus on improving public areas, two many dollars are spent on the aesthetics of buildings the public cannot access, yet some areas which are there to serve patients and their family members are in need significant improvements.
