Current Employee - Information Respresentative in Houston, TX

Pros

Excellent benefits including State of Texas Teachers Retirement for everyone, plus a month of Paid Time Off your first year. Easy going atmosphere. The focus here really is on the patients, you can do whatever you need to do to help them, and management won't question you.

Cons

Lots of dead weight. No one ever gets fired. People call in sick constantly and never get reprimanded for it. Rarely see or here from management. Sometimes can feel invisible here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More contact between management and employees.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO
  2.  

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

    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.
