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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, who for the most part work as a team and are GREAT at what they do. Lots of compassion for the patients.

    Cons

    Staff is disrespected and unappreciated by management, work hours are long and though they say they promote work-life balance, try getting any time off (that you have earned) to spend with your family or go to see your Dr. We were constantly told that we needed to see more patients and do more procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for what they do and DON'T do. Don't expect others to fill in the gaps that you or others leave and not reprimand those who don't do their jobs.
