Pros

A world class cancer research facility with leading edge technologies. Great people, and very good work /life balance. Middle management does try to meet the expectations of the extremely diverse workforce.

Cons

Excessive political correctness, one must be very careful during casual conversations not to say anything that might be taken in the wrong context. In some cases, departmental meetings are not well structured, no process check, items brought up not on agenda.and outside the scope of the meeting. When assigned to work on special projects, very seldom were clear objectives set with defined dates for specific milestones. Projects tended to be open ended.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management needs to communicate more frequently with classified employees. I never once observed anyone from senior management personally attend a division level employee meeting. There needs to be more focus on improving public areas, two many dollars are spent on the aesthetics of buildings the public cannot access, yet some areas which are there to serve patients and their family members are in need significant improvements.

    Pros

    MD Anderson Cancer Center is the largest cancer center in the world. It has a large population of patients with different genetic background from US and other countries. The funding from NIH, personal donations, and public organization is great.

    Cons

    Big and hierarchy organization slow down everything. "At every step, we have somebody there to help you" means you will be stopped and checked at every step. Houston is hot, humid and Houston style.
