    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are worthwhile, time off is reasonable, and opportunities are endless if you know the right people.

    Cons

    Management isn't supportive, their expectations far outweigh what they are willing to pay and the office politics is far beyond what is necessary in a hospital for cancer patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more supportive. The people who do most of the work do know what is necessary to increase efficiency and if you want to succeed, I suggest you at least listen to feedback and give it some thought.

    Research Intern: Great company, dedicated to their mission, but not always collaborative

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center as an intern

    Pros

    Everyone works extremely hard; people will stay after hours to get their work done. Management is great and helpful (if not entirely present). There is ample growth opportunity so long as you work hard and get published

    Cons

    Group collaboration in the office is in short supply. Machinery is often broken, which makes it difficult when an experiment needs to get done right away.
