    I worked at US Oncology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was closer to home.

    Cons

    Different associate directors treating team members different. Some members of a team were allowed to work from home, while members of the other team were not. Management was not on the same page. Plus things went downhill once they were acquired by another company. Mgmt had their favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, as all the management is new.

    I worked at US Oncology as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Performed contract work in the Learning & Development department. Reported to an extremely professional, warm, kind, experienced director. US Oncology is a subsidiary of McKesson Corporation, one of the largest companies in the US. There was a gym on-site, a deli, they offered flex hours - and the opportunity to work from home. My co-workers were intelligent/highly-educated and friendly. I absolutely enjoyed my experience there.

    Cons

    The Woodlands is not necessarily an easy commute unless you live out there. Other than that, I can't think of any cons.

    I have been working at US Oncology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compassion for patients, excellent physicians and located throughout communities making it easily accessible. Wonderful idea to add specialties to mix.

    Cons

    Limited in resources, large corporate structure with the added issues associated with such. Some physicians are allowed to say and act in any fashion towards staff under the guise of 'just playing'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little more on Human Resources in each area so employees feel they can breathe at work. In other words, add more staff.
