    With such a large employee population >10,000 you can feel occasionally disconnected from other employees outside your department

    Take the time to get to know all staff in your department and discover each person's special talents and use that to encourage excellence from them.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    prestige, famous, big, comprehensive, patient appreciation, recognition, relatively higher pay than peers in the same city, good facility, appears rich

    Cons

    slow, a lot of waste of money, the quality of research doesn't really fit with the fame, bureaucratic, management ignorant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please get rid of of 80% of your VPs and 95% of the consultants. It is ridiculous that so much money is wasted in the facility, and the repeated investment and repeated failure in support systems such as the IT system. These IT consultants, middle manager makes more money than a Ph.D. scientist and produce nothing but wasting resources.
