I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center

Pros

Good reputation as being ranked number one in USA
Lots of specialties
Good hospital for cancer treatment
New technologies
Sponsor H1B visas

Cons

Very poor management. Predominantly hispanic community. They spend a lot of money on buildings and useless meetings and conferences but don't even pay a little for coffee. Clinical side gets all the attention, research people are being exploited. Very low payscale for PhD candidates and post doctoral fellows. On-campus housing is shared with UT-Houston and there is a very long waiting list. Employees need to pay for parking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Match the payscale for research jobs to national standards and compensate for annual inflation rates and rising market prices. Affordable on-campus housing is needed. Free parking for employees and trainees. Open all jobs to outside competition and be fair with the selection criteria. How will you achieve diversity if you do not recruit outside talents.

    Pros

    Growth opportunities are there if you are willing to reach out and work for them.

    Cons

    M. D. Anderson is a large and diverse environment, sometimes reaching across disciplines can be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I think you do a good job dealing with our economy. If I could fix any one thing it would be to help mid management deal with poor performers. These individuals are costly and diminish the moral of their peers.
