    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    prestige, famous, big, comprehensive, patient appreciation, recognition, relatively higher pay than peers in the same city, good facility, appears rich

    Cons

    slow, a lot of waste of money, the quality of research doesn't really fit with the fame, bureaucratic, management ignorant

    Advice to Management

    please get rid of of 80% of your VPs and 95% of the consultants. It is ridiculous that so much money is wasted in the facility, and the repeated investment and repeated failure in support systems such as the IT system. These IT consultants, middle manager makes more money than a Ph.D. scientist and produce nothing but wasting resources.

    Pros

    M.D. Anderson is in Houston's medical center area where as a scientist one can cooprate not only inside the institution but also outside the institution, such as Baylor college of Medicine, HSC at houston, UT medical branch, Rice University.

    Cons

    As a researcher, one need to cooperate within and outside the institue. Some time outside coopration save lots of time and efforts. Most of the cases P.I. took that initiative. The fellow set behind.

    Advice to Management

    Direct communication most of the time may save time and it would be more productive. Research is not a closed book.
