    Company values, work-life balance, great core facilities, access to leaders in the field, access to numerous research institutes, access to patient samples, constant opportunities for seminars and training events, free gym, people in Houston are friendly.

    Cons

    Compensation, but I was a lowly GRA then postdoc so I can't really judge this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay postdocs more! But that goes out to NIH more than MD Anderson.
