I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Doctors are all top notch, top of their field professionals.
Benefits are great.
Interaction with cancer patients (if in job description) can be a life changer.

Cons

With such top notch doctors, comes almost impossible demands.
Excellent leadership in clinics and as managers is absolutely critical. In areas where there is subpar management, everyone really suffers.
Not as quick promotion potential - everything takes a serious amount of time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just look at paper qualifications for managing positions. There is lots of talent at this place, though due to its massive size, it's hard to keep track of everyone's performance. A better system needs to be made for employee growth when constantly meeting or exceeding expectations. And harsher punishments need to be made for those that do not perform.

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

    Pros

    I could work on hi-fi research at a faster pace. Work on several projects at the same time. The first year was very good.

    Cons

    Despite MD Anderson being the best place to work, My professor was showed no encouragement and appreciation for the efforts. Also the friday group meetings are a nightmare. There was also personal bias and racial discrimination involved. Your job satisfaction fell so bad lots of times - I believe this totally depends on who your mentor is.
    However, MD anderson as a whole is the best place to be employed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor the Professor and his/her interaction with lab research people more closely.
