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

    Pros

    I love working at MD Anderson! Everyone is committed to working together in making cancer history. Our patients come first! The staff and faculty are great to work with, very respectable and willing to hel you grow! The institution as a whole invests in your future and wants you to continue your education, whether it be completing and achieving your degree all the way up to receiving your PH.D. The benefits are a bonus too!

    Cons

    The only thing I can say that is a con is that the pay can be a little better. Instead of offering higher salaries to those applying from the outside the pay should be higher for internal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge and appreciate those hardworkers and always welcome open communication and have a trusting but fun environment.

    I would engage all types of employees in decision making. It feels that the institution makes all these decisions/changes without really asking those who really use it.

    Pros

    Getting to work with great people, meeting and talking to patients trying to make there time with MD Anderson as enjoyable as possible. Benefits and pay is wonderful.

    Cons

    I really don't have a down side working here, I have so many loving stories with co-workers

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I would give any employer is to actually have co-workers sit with other co-workers in different departments for a week to get a better understanding of what everyone is responsible to get a better understanding of the full operation.

    Pros

    MD Anderson Cancer Center is a high reputation hospital and provides excellent quality of service to patient.

    Cons

    Because of the large size of the organization, certain processes need to go through a chain of steps cross different departments, and can take longer than expected.

    Pros

    I started in the housekeeping department in 2011 and have since been promoted 4 times within the past 7 yrs I have been employed here.

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

    Pros

    Teamwork is definitely a pro around my department. Despite we all have specific assignments, there is always a helping hand available. Whenever I need assistance with my assignments, colleagues are always quick to assist in order to move forward. My immediate leadership also constantly reviews workloads and spreads them out among the team in order to avoid becoming burned out.
    Growth is another huge pro throughout all of MD Anderson. Everyone is encouraged to continue attaining training and higher education through programs, information sessions, and financial assistance. All are also encouraged to go up in the employment ladder and in most cases it happens in such a short time.
    Finally benefits are a bonus for all full-time employees.

    Cons

    A con is the fact that the pay could be better for the amount of workload that we have. Higher salaries should be offered to internal employees rather than external employees. Another con is the lack of uniformity in training throughout various departments. For example, in my department, there are 8+ teams. Although we all perform the same duties, the training varies.
