I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

good benefits, decent people on the whole, tuition reimbursement is nice as is the cohort program ONLY if you are pursuing a degree related to healthcare.

Cons

rigidity in advancement, micromanagement, highly specialized which can be disadvantageous to older employees or employees that have time constraints that hinder educational opportunities

    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    incredible access to patient volume and diverse array of resources in terms of translational science collaborators. Good support administratively Gym in the Pickens Tower is an amazing benefit

    Cons

    State mentality makes it difficult sometimes to get things done
    too many layers of bureaucrats managing those of us who actually produce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diminish layers of bureaucracy
    Promote physicians as decision makers, not MBAs
    Realize that our fundamental strength is in clinical care and then leverage that through innovative collaborations with scientists; not the other way around.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    The facilities were far above average. The caliber of your peers and active research programs were highly regarded. A lot of effort was made to encourage collaboration.

    Cons

    Compensation was below average. Work-life balance was not a priority of my direct supervisor. Large size of institution makes travel times to different areas long.
