Best Places to Work: 2013 (#5)
I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than 10 years)

Advice to Management
Continue down the road to complete transparency and seek advice/input from every employee.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX).
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.
