    I worked at Texas Oncology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family-like environment.

    Departments run cohesively.

    Typically easy to get time off approved.

    Departmental supervisors are great, not so much administrators.

    8-5 job Monday-Friday. Holidays off. Never have to take the clinic home with you.

    Cons

    Management does not show appreciation towards staff.

    Favoritism geared towards nurses, all other staff seems second to their needs.

    Always understaffed, if someone quit, their duties were "dispersed" to others in their department.

    Yearly raises are barely cost-of-living increases. Never get bonuses or other financial incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to your employees in ways other than buying the staff pizza (we work for money, not food). Stop being cheap and replace staff that quits.

    I have been working at Texas Oncology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great practice Administrator, awesome coworkers, business managers nice, always feeding us with free food, Christmas bonus from the Doctors, fun holiday decorating and dressing up, great pay, paid TWOP, medical/dental/vision benefits, life insurance, 401k, educational plan, etc.

    Cons

    30 min lunches, stressful, employees who get written up for doing stupid stuff get mad and put in their notice, which leaves the good employees having to wear a few hats (as in having to do a few positions) and not having enough employees who fill all positions and tends to make us fulltime employees a little overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    Try recruiting to find someone to fill positions. Also a great incentive, it would be nice to have an hour lunch.

    I worked at Texas Oncology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, pay was better than most places. Doctors are all very nice.

    Cons

    The management is unprofessional and going through the chains of command for help gets you nowhere. They play favorites and the workload isn't evenly distributed. They promise you training you never get and leave you to figure it out yourself. If you ask for help from your supervisor beware because she probably will yell at you because that's what she does. The management is a huge problem. Voicing your concerns gets you nowhere but in a deeper hole. The supervisor likes to pit the employees against each other and makes it a very uncomfortable environment to work in, especially after she knows you've gone to upper management about her unprofessional behavior and comments in the workplace. They play favorites with employees. They expect you to work overtime whenever needed despite whatever you have going on at home because they are very understaffed and take way too long to hire anyone when they do get a position approved.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let a manager be demeaning and immoral to employees and standby and do nothing about it. Don't take so long to get help where there is help needed. Don't ignore an employee when they come to you on multiple occasions with concerns about supervisors and work conduct issues.

    I worked at Texas Oncology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Regular 8-5 working hours and no weekends or holidays.

    Cons

    Unsafe place to work. I wouldn't want to be a patient here or allow my family members to be patients here, either.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider your priorities. Short-term profit isn't everything. Safety first, profit second. That's how you stay in business without hurting patients & getting sued.
