Pros

Health Benefits are great. There are campus police that help you feel safe, especially if you have to stay over hours.

Cons

No down sides for this particular company, well, maybe one, that is that you have to pay for your parking space.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Md Anderson prides themselves as a number one leader in cancer which is true, they try hard to have the best doctors, staff and are always constantly trying to instill their core values so that you can be a better employee.

    Pros

    M.D. Anderson is huge so you get plenty of support.

    Cons

    Very political. Your growth development and promotion depends heavily on how politically savvy you are, not on how well you do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on competency and performance record than just plain self-promotion talk.

    Great for cancer care and research, not so great if you're an IT professional

    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    Great benefits/retirement plans, very rewarding to work for the best cancer center in the country, very secure employment, great work-life flexibility, start at 4 weeks vacation/year and increase from there.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and top-heavy. Executive leadership is reactionary and lacks vision. IT-wise, we're in the dark ages. IT implementations always run long and over budget, largely due to a lack of talent. Overstaffed/underskilled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set goals of where you want to go, and give staff the freedom to determine how to get there. A lot of time is spent controlling the how, with little regard to where we are going.
