Good pay and benefits
Nice cafeteria
Nice looking building
A lot of potential opportunities throughout the hospital

Cons

Training was horrible
Little patience shown toward learning curve
Lack of staffing
Rude and impatient doctor to work with
lack of flexibility in scheduling
My shoe had more people skills then one of the doctors I worked with

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide adequate training for new hires in research
Some doctors need to get some people skills
Show more patients toward the learning curve given the lack of staffing
Hire more staff!

    I worked at MD Anderson

    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.
