    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.

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

    Pros

    you get your exercise because you will be walking a lot within your work day

    Cons

    i felt that the research was skewed. the PI of our study didn't like any no as answers to their questions in their study so they made another coordinator go back and present the questions in a different way to the patients so that they would get a yes. I would also hear our PI in the workroom make fun of how the patients don't know what they are saying yes to but that as long as they say yes that she (the PI) is happy. She holds a big position in that particular department and I did not enjoy working near her.
