    Good.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe atmosphere in the system is that of a team where everyone can work in a collaborative fashion without much, if any, struggle.

    Great place to work!

    Research Assistant (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat benefits, including tuition reimbursement and a nice gym on campus to work out in. MD Anderson also has a great mentoring program for developing your professional goals and making connections with employees in other departments.

    ConsThe starting salary is relatively low for some positions. Also, MD Anderson is highly bureaucratic so it takes a long for something to be approved.
