    Pros

    MD Anderson provides a wealth of opportunities for undergraduate students to obtain professional research experience, especially during the summer when students are searching for something to do.

    Cons

    This is a very fast-paced, professional research environment. You must make sure you are on top of your game everyday.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center as an intern

    Pros

    Very nice housing at Rice University and keeps the students well knitted and interactive

    Cons

    Had very little leeway as to what project you want to carry out during the summer, most students winded up doing wet lab work and not necessarily clinic stuff

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Medical Insurance is free, dental and vision are dirt cheap. Research facilities are top notch.

    Cons

    Some of the research infrastructure is archaic and run by people who should have retired long ago. Research protocols are entered and edited using Lotus Notes - unbelievable.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best benefits in all of the medical center.

    Cons

    The emphasis on prestige through research has tripled the patient load which in turn has overworked and exhausted staff...almost to the point of costly mistakes. There's a reason MD Anderson is no longer #1. The turnover rate in most departments is ridiculous. Newly hired employees are left to fend for themselves without proper training. The 2-3% raise rates are laughable (maybe $20 extra a pay period), especially since most parking has increased by almost $50. The performance based bonus is a set-up for failure since more and more patients are unhappy with the care they're receiving. Morale is low and the pressure to perform on little support from management is high. Growth within the company is non-existent unless you're "in" with management. In the past 2 years alone, a number of prestigious executives and physicians have left the institution, some with little warning. Cutting costs comes in the form of not hiring qualified management down to supplies. Don't count on HR for help as the buddy system rules and cries for help have already been ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul HR and fix the obvious signs of failure.
