I have been working at MD Anderson

Pros

incredible access to patient volume and diverse array of resources in terms of translational science collaborators. Good support administratively Gym in the Pickens Tower is an amazing benefit

Cons

State mentality makes it difficult sometimes to get things done
too many layers of bureaucrats managing those of us who actually produce

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diminish layers of bureaucracy
Promote physicians as decision makers, not MBAs
Realize that our fundamental strength is in clinical care and then leverage that through innovative collaborations with scientists; not the other way around.

    I worked at MD Anderson

    Pros

    The facilities were far above average. The caliber of your peers and active research programs were highly regarded. A lot of effort was made to encourage collaboration.

    Cons

    Compensation was below average. Work-life balance was not a priority of my direct supervisor. Large size of institution makes travel times to different areas long.
