Pros

Good benefits and retirement plan. Clean and new work environments. Well known brand name for your resume. Good work-life balance.

Cons

No promotion growth and really hard to transfer to another department. Management is full of nepotism and lacking respect towards CPAs. Their mission emphasizes "Caring" values but they don't practice this towards their employees. Here, it doesn't matter how intelligent and hard you work, if management doesn't like you, then you are out of luck. People with the wrong attitude and poor management style get promoted over you. Human Resources is full of red-tape bureaucrats and make impossible demands that you be the same people person as everyone else. Once you become a senior accountant, then it's time to leave. Staying here too long can hurt your career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management's attitude hurts moral.

    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    innovative drug therapies, fast-paced workload; challenging and motivating
    good wook schedules, flexible scheduling available; overtime frequently offered
    competitive salary with good benefits

    Cons

    weak upper management; failure to deal with problem employees; HR is worthless, in that all it does is to worry about not getting sued, so it takes decades to fire a bad worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make HR understand that they are working for MDA management, not the other way around.
    Hire/develop stronger leaders & managers in the Pharmacy department
