I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The mission of eliminating cancer makes one feel special and the majority of the employees are committed and know the mission. Great retirement plan.

Cons

Extremely political with doctors in charge with egos the size of Texas. The doctors are terrific physicians and scientists but that does not translate to knowing everything about everything. All the doctors have to do is whine to a higher up and they get there way. Bullying is rampant at the highest levels of the organization and no one does anything about it. Money is wasted through duplicate services and allowing the doctors to all have their own unique and customized way of working. The president and his wife plus the cohort of cronies they brought from Boston. The core values of caring, discovery, and integrity are just words and not practiced from the top down. The organization has degraded significantly over the last 10 years and has reached a crisis point.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a new president and vice presidents especially in patient care and administration.

    Pros

    Great benefits, very structured and organized. I worked for here for 5years met great people and the Doctors are truly passionate about what they do!

    Cons

    Do research on departments before you accept some departments have poor management. It's more of who you know rather than your qualifications for jobs be mindful of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to cleaned up at MD some managers are not at all qualified to be managers. The best manage I had retired and I left the department.
