    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.
