    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nearly every employee believes they are doing their part to Make Cancer History.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel our organization has grown too big. I look forward to our new Executive leadership to see positive changes to our culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue down the road to complete transparency and seek advice/input from every employee.

    Senior Research Data Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    This will vary widely based on your prospective boss, but for me:

    1) Interviewed initially with one PI and guy whose job I was taking over
    2) Interviewed with two more co-PIs and lab manager

    Interviews were relaxed and conversational; no "What's your greatest weakness?" or "How many golf balls would fit in this room?" nonsense. The idea seemed to be making sure I was easy to get along with after already having vetted my resume.
