I worked at MD Anderson

Pros

Great people, benefits were good, and you can take pride in knowing that your contributions are helping realize a greater good...

Cons

i would say health care is second only to government for embracing technology and its applications... its most likely the industry erring on the side of caution, but that's not going to help you sharpen your underutilized development skills when your hired to maintain an environment that a consulting firm packaged up for the hospital.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing. I was impressed both by my immediate management as well as executive level during my stint there...

    I have been working at MD Anderson

    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
