    Core Values taking a back seat to money and egos?

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsMission to cure cancer is worthwhile. Providing life-giving treatment to cancer patients is it's own reward. Some of the most brilliant and dedicated oncologists and healthcare professionals in the world work here. Very good employee benefits and excellent retirement plan if you can stay for the long haul.

    ConsThe big business of caring has taken a back seat to egos and money. Lack of trust in upper management is at an all time high and getting worse. Fear of retaliation is a problem for a reason. Upper managers seem to think themselves untouchable. Some areas are chronically short staffed and staff have to work in ridiculously tight spaces.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the fat at the top and give the front lines enough staff and support to provide the quality of care our patients deserve. Get back to treating all staff with caring, integrity and discovery- not just paying lip service to our core values and putting flimsy band aids on the real issues.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A lot of smart, amazing people, great place to learn

    Research Assistant II (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsYou have a lot of opportunities to learn, great gym, lots of wellness related options.

    ConsNot much growth opportunities for people in research, especially RAs. Very low pay, if you are in research.

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

    not bad, but not great

    Patient Services Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Prosgood benefits, decent people on the whole, tuition reimbursement is nice as is the cohort program ONLY if you are pursuing a degree related to healthcare.

    Consrigidity in advancement, micromanagement, highly specialized which can be disadvantageous to older employees or employees that have time constraints that hinder educational opportunities

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
