    Great place to work for first time job experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGet exposed t wide range of responsibilities and obtain skills. Plenty of opportunities to learn new skill and progress

    ConsSometime the size of the institution can be daunting to adjust. One needs to put a lot of effort to adapt to a highly regulated hospital industry.

    M.D. Anderson is a great institution dedicated to curing cancer

    Instructor Research Faculty Appointment (Current Employee) Smithville, TX

    ProsStable company with outstanding leadership and strong core values. Annual reviews foster career development. Institutional survey's encourage change as needed. Pleasant work colleagues and professional support.

    ConsDifficult to promote through the ranks in academia from postdoc to Asst. Professor, but opportunities are still available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPostdocs are a valuable resource, not just for the moment but for a longer tenure when given challenging tasks that are validated by appropriate title changes and compensation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Into MK Ultra

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPractices MK Ultra in collaberation with other schools of medicine. Inhumane, unethical, derelict in spending of grant money. Then on the bright side they feed you alot, have huge extravagant blow out parties, take you out to eat alot.

    ConsThey are all now from this strange Massachussets democratic mentality. If you vote Republican they will terminate you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo your own damage control for when you get overhelmed.

    Can't imagine a better place to work as a nurse

    Clinical Nurse (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat nursing culture, large hospital with many resources, plenty of room for growth within the organization. Best pay and benefits for nurses. Teacher's retirement pension plan can't be beat. Money for you to go back to school $5200/yr on top of your salary.

    ConsDivision of nursing has been implementing some strict nursing policies on dress code and time and attendance. There is a point system for being late, forgetting to clock in, calling in sick, etc. If you accrue too many points it can affect your ability to receive salary increases and job transfers. DePinho has given MDA a very bad image. Tired of the negative press that he has brought.
