    Pros

    Passion of the workforce. Good medical benefits and vacation policy. They really want to find a cure for cancer.

    Cons

    Very naive outside the field of medicine and oncology. Clickish. If you're not part of the group, you don't know what's going on and you feel like management is going to do what it wants to do, regardless of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and involve them in decision making at the lower level, but also at the strategic level.

    Outstanding People and Great Mission; Don't Promote From Within and Low Salary

    I worked at Moffitt Cancer Center full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people that work for Moffitt are wonderful! They truly care about the patients and their co-workers. I felt like I was making a difference when I went into work everday even though I rarely had patient contact.

    Cons

    The salary is low and they rarely promote from within. It seems a lot of the issues are from lower management and HR. The CEO is trying to foster positive change, but HR and the lower level managers seem to be stuck in their ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise salaries to be competitive and give loyal employees a chance to move up and into different departments that may interest them. The HR department needs to be cleaned out and new people need to be brought in. They literally told me they don't give any added consideration to internal candidates. That's a moral killer.

    I worked at Moffitt Cancer Center

    Pros

    Was great to be part of the largest cancer center in Florida with some impressive clinicians and researchers.

    Cons

    Definitely need to clean house at the top. Leadership has been in place far too long. The organization needs new ideas and up-to-date technologies. Theleadership clique at the top and in middle management doesn't get what it takes to run an employer of choice organization, although they talk about becoming one. It's all talk and no action. Salaries are far too low and benefits have been cut to the bone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to the front line staff. Enter into the 20th century in terms of management skills. Put the focus on strong, effective management.

    I have been working at Moffitt Cancer Center full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The organization provides a lot of perks such as discounted tickets for Tampa Bay professional sports teams and theme parks. I also have had the opportunity of taking advantage of a flexible work schedule as well.

    Cons

    Well the organization is a non-profit so don't expect getting paid a lot of money unless you are an upper level executive, or a medical professional. The internal customer service between employees can be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management really needs to take the time out to know what goes on with front level staff thats the face or the organization. Internal customer service could be improved as well. Many medical professionals can speak to other employees in a condescending manner which is uncalled for. Hopefully, their bedside manner with patients is better than the internal customer service.

    I worked at Moffitt Cancer Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Moffitt leadership is honest and approachable, they truly care about work/life balance. Salaries on par with other health care organizations with yearly incentive increases. The research is cutting edge and there is a strong dedication to the mission. I loved my time at Moffitt and after leaving to work for the government, I wish I could go back!

    Cons

    Unfortunately, you have to pay for parking and there is not enough available for all employees.
