I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Gaining experience from a world-renowned institute which looks great on the resume.

Cons

Too much micromanagement, research management does not keep its promises, cannot trust in your supervisors, difficult to transfer to other departments; lately many people were hired for clinical research with no relevant education and/or experience; failed HR employees transfer themselves to positions and getting the highest end of the salary range, while they don't have relevant education and/or experience, while at the same time regular employees barely get a raise; unfair treatment of certain employees, double standard. More cons than pros for sure.

Advice to Management

Fire all HR personnel, review research management's performance and change them where it is required, review "flex hours" as some employees take advantage of that (e.g. supposed to work 40 hours during 4 days, but work only 8 hours per day or even much less - many times the excuse is that "working from home" while their work requires in-house presence).

    Pros

    If you want a good place to work with decent pay and benefits this is the place for you. You could sit here your whole life and accomplish very little in your career but you will have a paycheck.

    Cons

    They only promote people who have been there for years and the others are expected to wait their turn.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that are actually qualified to do their jobs.
