No down sides for this particular company, well, maybe one, that is that you have to pay for your parking space.

    Pros

    M.D. Anderson is huge so you get plenty of support.

    Cons

    Very political. Your growth development and promotion depends heavily on how politically savvy you are, not on how well you do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on competency and performance record than just plain self-promotion talk.


  2. "Great for cancer care and research, not so great if you're an IT professional"

    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.
