Current Employee - Business Systems Analyst in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Business Systems Analyst in Houston, TX
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great benefits/retirement plans, very rewarding to work for the best cancer center in the country, very secure employment, great work-life flexibility, start at 4 weeks vacation/year and increase from there.

Cons

Very bureaucratic and top-heavy. Executive leadership is reactionary and lacks vision. IT-wise, we're in the dark ages. IT implementations always run long and over budget, largely due to a lack of talent. Overstaffed/underskilled.

Advice to Management

Set goals of where you want to go, and give staff the freedom to determine how to get there. A lot of time is spent controlling the how, with little regard to where we are going.
