  1. Graduate Research Assistant

    Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with brilliant researchers, fully financed while earning my master's degree, wonderful coworkers and colleagues, overall a great place to work

    Cons

    Some courses weren't the most informative (though this was being worked on as I was leaving), some coursework generally unnecessary for day-to-day clinical physics

    Advice to Management

    Even the cons I've listed are the minor-est of gripes - I very much enjoyed my time at Anderson and would work there again


  2. Great in inpatient. Bad in outpatient.

    Pros

    Continously learning. Diversity. Have all the tools needed. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Experienced from Mays Clinic at a particular department. If you are not friends with your boss or colleagues (outside work), not the favorite, or just being dislike because of your "beliefs", no matter how hard you put your heart into helping patients, the management will find ways to make your life miserable by being called about mistakes while others (they like) gets away. No voice to say anything because Directors/Management's are close FRIENDS with HR. They don't promote growth in education especially if you wanted to transfer because HR will inform your department. Then they will put you on notice for one year. They have high turn over rate in that particular department. They will put lies in your evaluation goals. They would hire someone outside from a restaurant with no experience for the same position you have and pay her double amount of your salary maybe because she is a friend or a family member (you do not matter). If you give your 2 weeks notice, expect that you will be terminated.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees with unfairness, your department will suffer especially the patients. I am not surprised if your employees keeps quiting/leaving. I hope that all the wrong things you have done to your employees will soon bite you back.

    Pros

    The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is one of the original three comprehensive cancer centers in the United States established by the National Cancer Act of 1971.This cancer center is full of opportunities for junior scientists.

    Cons

    It is too big to effectively administrate in some aspects. Another important reason for me is so far away from my family. They live in Washington DC area.

    Advice to Management

    Adequate staffing helps employees provide a better experience to patients without rushing and stressing out over all the other patients that are still waiting to be helped.
    Have better oversight that removes employees that are not customer oriented and do not provide a caring experience.
