    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked in IT/IS. The staff I worked with for multi-decades years were wonderful, professional, diverse, engaging, and supportive. The pay better than average. Great benefits, PTO, and flexible work hours (never mind being on-call a lot). The work was challenging and contributions recognized.

    Cons

    Then came (1) the Epic implementation which was hugely over budget (fact) and implemented horribly (opinion), (2) The Affordable Care Act - which MDA got no piece of, (insurance greediness, and the current cadre of executive leadership and their minions which were obviously asleep at the wheel or too immersed in their own pet projects to have not seen the financial shortfall looming ahead.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to the UT Regents, not management. Drain the executive swamp.

    Please work more on recognizing your employees, promote them. Other companies in private sector are always on the hunt for seniors who lose faith in MD Anderson
