I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Colleagues are topnotch and for the most part, generous and helpful. The institution's mission is clear, and every employee is made to feel that their contribution is important. Benefits and compensation are good. There was a strong sense of camaraderie on my team.

Cons

Resources for training and development were sometimes hard to come by in my (non-patient facing) department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage all departments/divisions to invest in training and development of their staff. It will reenergize employees who've been asked for years to do more with less.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    Excellent, warm, inspiring environment. Researchers were very accessible. I was there when Ron Depinho became president and he seems to have a great vision for the hospital.

    Cons

    It was a research appointment, so some weekends were spent at work, though that's pretty standard. No other real significant cons if you want to work in research.

    Pros

    Vast amount of resources both in terms of people and infrastructure.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Very long process for everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it academic and don't turn it into a corporate entity.
