I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center

Pros

This is a prestigious facility with a lot of financial resources.

Cons

No recognition for a job well done, underpaid, overworked, not respected by management, top heavy with managers without enough people to do the real work, no management support from upper management, territorial 'pissing' matches, academic snobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

realize new graduates can't run your facility. patient care is suffering. you're expanding too fast. take time and support your staff.

    Pros

    -excellent learning experiences due to diverse and complex patient population
    -excellent support systems for PAs since MD Anderson employs more than any other institution worldwide, at least 120+
    -great opportunities to work in multiple departments
    -most employees stay long-term due to positive work experience
    -it's in the number one cancer hospital
    -located in the Texas Medical Center!

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
