    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working with the best of the best in oncology research; approachable faculty; co-workers from every area of the world; competitive salaries, beautiful surroundings (buildings/furniture), top-notch equipment.

    Cons

    Recent change in leadership (president) who is reworking how things have been done. Wants to commercialize. Lots of changes from the top-down. Not everyone is happy with the changes. Also brought some bad press which dedicated employees are having a hard time getting over. Also since a state agency it is difficult to fire low-achievers and high achievers are overburdened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the efforts of the dedicated, long-term employees; look at experience more than letters after someone's name. Rate work ethic higher than the degree that someone has.

    Forgotten mission and core values. Arrogance is a problem.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, work with lots of smart, dedicated people. It is very rewarding to help so many patients in need. TRS retirement is great benefit, if you can sick it out.

    Cons

    MDAnderson, you aren't the only place in town. Get real. High level managers in it for themselves have discarded the core value: INTEGRITY. You still have many hardworking, dedicated employees to keep the place running, But even patients are noticing how you have slipped. Now it's just business. That is very sad. I am not interested in returning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrity, Caring and Teamwork has to start at the top. and be expected of ALL. You ave too many in high levels who abuse their power over others. MDAnderson, you are headed in the WRONG direction. Get your high level managers to practice what you preach and treat employees and patients right.
