Pros

Staff is helpful and friendly. Many opportunities for career advancement due to the size of institution and diversity of jobs.

Cons

Very hard to get a permanent position with MDACC by just applying online. I suggest getting a contract position with a temp agency. MDACC has alot of contract employees. Many contract employees are ultimately offered permanent positions.

Advice to Management

The process of hiring employees needs to be quicker. It takes too long to get feedback on applications.

    Pros

    Working with the best of the best in oncology research; approachable faculty; co-workers from every area of the world; competitive salaries, beautiful surroundings (buildings/furniture), top-notch equipment.

    Cons

    Recent change in leadership (president) who is reworking how things have been done. Wants to commercialize. Lots of changes from the top-down. Not everyone is happy with the changes. Also brought some bad press which dedicated employees are having a hard time getting over. Also since a state agency it is difficult to fire low-achievers and high achievers are overburdened.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the efforts of the dedicated, long-term employees; look at experience more than letters after someone's name. Rate work ethic higher than the degree that someone has.
