    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It has been about a month since I started working for MD Anderson Cancer Center. I cannot tell you enough just in one single review, this is the best place I had ever worker during my career. When you are looking for an employer, you always want to be with the best one. I did an extent research trying to find out what was great about working with MD Anderson, but you are never going to find out until you actually start working here. First and the most important favor is the cause why we are all here, to help and contribute to eliminate cancer. Every single employee, doesn’t matter what position, department or level is important as anyone else. I had never felt so proud to say where I work and what I do until I started at MD Anderson. I feel very blessed by having the opportunity to work for MD Anderson, this organization not only cares about its patients, but also takes care of its employees. I do not know any other employer that would have what we have in campus. You just need to work here…

    Cons

    I don’t really have anything negative to say about the institution, other than I wish they would make more affordable parking for employees. The parking can be limited and expensive. It does not affect me since MD Anderson has a program for commuters. I live in EADO so I take the metro rail and MD Anderson, will deduct the amount I select pre-tax to pay for it. PLUS I will get reimbursed in case I need to drive in my vehicle twice a month.

    Advice to Management

    My management is really great! They are very inclusive, and they are always looking for areas to help me and my team develop.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at MD Anderson Cancer Center is the institute's mission. Cancer hits home to almost anyone and it really means a lot to me that my institute is doing a whole lot about it!

    Cons

    Parking is an issue, but, unfortunately, there isn't much that can be done about it since MD Anderson doesn't own some of these parking garages.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
