    I have been working at Moffitt Cancer Center full-time

    Pros

    Moffitt Cancer Center is a fast growing company with plenty of room for growth if your a motivated individual. If you work for a team that is properly staffed, you will also be able to benefit from a reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    Moffitt is a very bureaucratic organization with a great deal of political nonsense that can often prevent teams from being productive. If you are lucky to work for a good leader who is willing to listen to their employees you will find the place rewarding. The benefits have gone down-hill over the past 6 years. The company no longer values the employees like they used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering being more selective in the leadership that is chosen at Director levels. Directors that come in and turn things upside-down without any prior knowledge of operations of the teams, groups, and/or people can set your progress back by several years.

    Pros

    The benefits are great- great PTO and number of holidays off. The doctors and nurses are fabulous.

    Cons

    The leadership needs to improve their communication with staff. Very little opportunity for advancement without additional education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to promote from within more. The staff works hard and should be promoted for it.

    I have been working at Moffitt Cancer Center full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are a compassionate individual that cares about contributing to the prevention and cure of cancer. Working with the patients can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    If you are a female or a minority, It does not matter how experienced, educated or qualified you are for a potential position, if you are looking to move up in your career, this is not the place to do it. .
    Every single department in the organization is overworked, severely understaffed and underpaid.
    Employees are not valued
    Benefits have been severely reduced or cut, because of budget constraints, but for some reason there was still enough money in our budget to break ground on a new 80 million dollar facility??
    Inexperienced and unqualified people appointed to leadership positions because they are friends with the right people.
    Leadership decisions are all politically motivated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to the high turnover rate and equate that with the poor leadership.
