"Worst Place for a Business Professional"

Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Houston, TX

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good hospital and ammenities - the institution's mission is to make cancer history. Progress is made every day, be it slow.

Cons

No respect for business professionals, you will be treated nothing. Micro management empire - esteem killing jobs. I have never been happier since I left that dead end job. And the executive management is the worst - all very educated MDs with zero business sense and gigantic egos.

Advice to Management

With non-business people running business - you can't be helped.

    Ensure that all supervisors get training in supervision at M. D. Anderson, even if they have had training elsewhere

    Pros

    Great pride working for one of the top cancer hospitals in the world.

    Cons

    Very hard to transfer to different departments, They say you can transfer after 6 months of employment but unless you know someone in management you can't move anywhere, If you are not a nurse or doctor you will get NO respect, They tend to look down on nursing assistants, clerks, secretaries etc... You might as well be invisible.

    Advice to Management

    Management has a real problem about choosing favorites. It's extremely unfair to the employees to watch management goof off and appoint their "favs" raises while your busting your butt for nothing. They should also be required to take classes in proffesionalism as well.
