Great place to work - But only for internal referrals - Outsiders don't even bother to apply for a job

Research Fellow (Current Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

ProsGood reputation as being ranked number one in USA
Lots of specialties
Good hospital for cancer treatment
New technologies
Sponsor H1B visas

ConsVery poor management. Predominantly hispanic community. They spend a lot of money on buildings and useless meetings and conferences but don't even pay a little for coffee. Clinical side gets all the attention, research people are being exploited. Very low payscale for PhD candidates and post doctoral fellows. On-campus housing is shared with UT-Houston and there is a very long waiting list. Employees need to pay for parking.

Advice to Senior ManagementMatch the payscale for research jobs to national standards and compensate for annual inflation rates and rising market prices. Affordable on-campus housing is needed. Free parking for employees and trainees. Open all jobs to outside competition and be fair with the selection criteria. How will you achieve diversity if you do not recruit outside talents.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Systems Analyst II (Current Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center


Pros: MDACC has great benefits, many interesting things going on, good… Cons: the bureucracy can be overwhelming. Since it's an arm of UT, it's a state agency; since it's a state agency, it's a huge bureaucracy.
