    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    Pros

    The office culture was great, flexibility in work hours, benefits and overall atmosphere were great. Facilities provided within the campus are great, and convenient location.

    Cons

    Nothing really that I can think off the top of my head. The training videos were somewhat annoying, and not really relevant to my work itself.

    Pros

    great place to start your career (and continue!). great wellness center..its free. everyone seems to be nice so far and there is a lot of work to jump in on. you will not be bored if you work here.

    Cons

    Parking is expensive like all TMC organizations. Compensation could be updated to reflect cost of living increase in Houston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider readjusting compensation to reflect the rising cost of living in Houston. Employees (non-physician) will have to move south or west to afford housing. this will cause long commutes and dissatisfied employees. The only other option would be to implement a shuttle service like Mayo clinic (Minneapolis to Rochester). It has wifi and is extremely discounted for employees. This would solve parking issues and decrease the demand for higher compensation.

    Pros

    Pros include the ability for growth within the company and the benefits were great! Plus there is a gym that employees can use that is free of charge!

    Cons

    I hated paying for parking, that was my biggest issue. Also certain supervisors/managers do not want to see you grow so don't expect a hand out!
