Current Employee - Behavioral Science Research Coordinator in Houston, TX

No opinion of CEO

I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Tuition reimbursement; insurance; parking; healthy food options

Cons

management; micromanaging; want you to work 45 hrs without flex time; for a promotion you can only get a 15% increase at max of your current salary (which usually puts you at the minimum range of the new position). Staff is underpaid and management is overpaid; bonuses and rewards always go to upper management, rarely is it given to staff. High turnover rate.

Advice to Management

Staff also has a family to go to on the evenings. There is apparently something wrong when the turnover rate is high in the departments.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, work with lots of smart, dedicated people. It is very rewarding to help so many patients in need. TRS retirement is great benefit, if you can sick it out.

    Cons

    MDAnderson, you aren't the only place in town. Get real. High level managers in it for themselves have discarded the core value: INTEGRITY. You still have many hardworking, dedicated employees to keep the place running, But even patients are noticing how you have slipped. Now it's just business. That is very sad. I am not interested in returning.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity, Caring and Teamwork has to start at the top. and be expected of ALL. You ave too many in high levels who abuse their power over others. MDAnderson, you are headed in the WRONG direction. Get your high level managers to practice what you preach and treat employees and patients right.

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

    Pros

    competitive salary, most folks are friendly and willing to share knowledge, mentoring environment, many educational and training courses are offered for advancement within the institution.

    Cons

    It's not what you know, but who you know environment. Fear of retalitaion from upper management is frequently a concern across the institution. Many in management positions are office bullies, and often threaten employees to ensure processes are carried out their way. Even though the way they want it carried out may not be the very best or logical way...they want it their way. Additionally, I have experienced going above and beyond my call of duty for years, only to receive pennies as monetary compensation. Needless to say, I've often witnessed a severe lack of caring, integrity, and character in upper management. Additionally, on a few occasions, as sad as it is, I've even seen forms of racisim. It's right under the radar, but it's here. In some shape, form or fashion, employees have to pay to come to work. Either paying to ride a bus, van pool, or ridiculous parking prices for a local garage.
