    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging Multi cultural Good teamwork Great employee resources/training Excellent benefits (medical is free - dental/vision $40 roughly per month) Employee perks

    Cons

    Limited growth: many assistants train or perform senior or exclusive assistant roles with no salary/title change. Most coworkers haven't been promoted in over five years. High turn over. Hard to switch into a different field. Coworkers lack education (only one of two with college education) Coworkers tend to be a little more rough around the edges

    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Medical insurance is paid for; PTO is given at the end of every month; Department is really good about work/life balance

    Cons

    You have to pay for parking; It is mandatory for you to contribute to TRS; Unable to use PTO within the first six months; Unable to change department for a year; Pay is not competitive

    Advice to Management

    Try offering something to the people that choose to pay for parking. It is not cheap! Also, when you put people in management positions, please make sure that they don't run your entire staff away.

    Pros

    World class institution with lots of opportunities for professional growth.

    Cons

    Very political amidst sweeping organizational change. It's a very large organization, so you could find yourself lost.

    Advice to Management

    From what I hear, it's more beareucratic than corporate America. Change takes a long time and the people are not willing to change.
