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

    Pros

    Pros include the ability for growth within the company and the benefits were great! Plus there is a gym that employees can use that is free of charge!

    Cons

    I hated paying for parking, that was my biggest issue. Also certain supervisors/managers do not want to see you grow so don't expect a hand out!

    Base decisions on facts and core values.
