    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is NIH standards. Houston, cost of living is low. Can live very close to lab. Health benefits are good. No snow. Gym is free. Scientific Publication help service is free. Medical center is ripe for collaboration. Many well run core labs.

    Cons

    Parking your own car is expensive except on South Campus. Not really applicable to post-docs but Institute (South campus) offers higher salaries, but expectations are completely unreasonable. Don't suggest working there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately, discontent and some power struggles still fester at the very top. See newspaper Houston Chronicle for more information.

    I have been working at MD Anderson Cancer Center (less than a year)

    Pros

    They really invest in their employees with benefits like tuition assistance. I was still in school when I worked there, and they really wanted to make sure that I was happy and wanted to return to work there when I graduated.

    Cons

    It's a challenging patient population. Every floor was different, but the one I was on had very intense day shifts. I learned a lot through this, but it also made asking others for help more challenging because everyone had so much to do already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring more nurses to help with the patient load.

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center as an intern

    Pros

    Very nice housing at Rice University and keeps the students well knitted and interactive

    Cons

    Had very little leeway as to what project you want to carry out during the summer, most students winded up doing wet lab work and not necessarily clinic stuff

    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.
