    Pros

    It's hard not to be proud of working for an institution working to "Make Cancer History" and most employees are happy to be here....however (see the "Cons" section).

    Cons

    Negative news about the new president, his wife and the appearance of shady financial issues (grant application mess, pres recommended stock for his company on TV, etc.) is damaging morale. Overall, it's still a good place to work with employer-paid benefits, decent pay and growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Straighten up and fly right, own up to judgment errors, apologize and don't ever, ever, ever hire a husband and wife "team" for such powerful positions.

    Core Values taking a back seat to money and egos?

    Pros

    Mission to cure cancer is worthwhile. Providing life-giving treatment to cancer patients is it's own reward. Some of the most brilliant and dedicated oncologists and healthcare professionals in the world work here. Very good employee benefits and excellent retirement plan if you can stay for the long haul.

    Cons

    The big business of caring has taken a back seat to egos and money. Lack of trust in upper management is at an all time high and getting worse. Fear of retaliation is a problem for a reason. Upper managers seem to think themselves untouchable. Some areas are chronically short staffed and staff have to work in ridiculously tight spaces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the fat at the top and give the front lines enough staff and support to provide the quality of care our patients deserve. Get back to treating all staff with caring, integrity and discovery- not just paying lip service to our core values and putting flimsy band aids on the real issues.
