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

Pros

good contacts, great work experience

Cons

poor pay, high paperwork, admin positions get paid too much

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the salary to scientists who are the brains behind the operation. It is frustrating for scientists to know that paper pushers in the department 'so called project managers' are the ones with the big salaries.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with the patients is the bomb for me, they are all so sweet and gracious. Also, they have the latest technology on most everything as far as tools to get your job done. There are lots of good friends here. They pay well. The benefits are great.

    Cons

    Since they are so big, it takes too long for some things to get done. Supervisors in the department do not use the discipline process well, they either ignore it or over-use it. They should have more training so you can know what to expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for wrongful terminations.

    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gaining experience from a world-renowned institute which looks great on the resume.

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement, research management does not keep its promises, cannot trust in your supervisors, difficult to transfer to other departments; lately many people were hired for clinical research with no relevant education and/or experience; failed HR employees transfer themselves to positions and getting the highest end of the salary range, while they don't have relevant education and/or experience, while at the same time regular employees barely get a raise; unfair treatment of certain employees, double standard. More cons than pros for sure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all HR personnel, review research management's performance and change them where it is required, review "flex hours" as some employees take advantage of that (e.g. supposed to work 40 hours during 4 days, but work only 8 hours per day or even much less - many times the excuse is that "working from home" while their work requires in-house presence).
