    Pros

    great benefits and that's about it.

    Cons

    I have to walk outside from the garage to my building and we are not allowed to use their shuttle unless we are using it to attend a work meeting from one place to another. It's hard to walk a long distance outside when it's pouring rain and when it is freezing temperatures outside.
    my job is boring. no one else in the department wants to do it even though they all can. Lot of lazy people here in this department. certain people can leave early everyday but i stay late on most occasions which is causing me to look for other jobs currently.
    i don't feel like this is true research. we sway patients into signing a certain way…the way the doctor wants us. i will be writing the IRB soon.
    bad cafeteria food.
    walking from one building to another is a very long distance.

    Advice to Management

    make sure all employees are treated fairly. have shuttle accommodations for everyone.

  8. Great place to start!

    Pros

    great place to start your career (and continue!). great wellness center..its free. everyone seems to be nice so far and there is a lot of work to jump in on. you will not be bored if you work here.

    Cons

    Parking is expensive like all TMC organizations. Compensation could be updated to reflect cost of living increase in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Consider readjusting compensation to reflect the rising cost of living in Houston. Employees (non-physician) will have to move south or west to afford housing. this will cause long commutes and dissatisfied employees. The only other option would be to implement a shuttle service like Mayo clinic (Minneapolis to Rochester). It has wifi and is extremely discounted for employees. This would solve parking issues and decrease the demand for higher compensation.

    Pros

    I can't really think of any pros. Some of the departments, such as cancer biology are somewhat functional.

    Cons

    Conceited faculty, slow management, poor quality research, lack of job growth, mismanagement goes to the very top

    Pros

    Pros include the ability for growth within the company and the benefits were great! Plus there is a gym that employees can use that is free of charge!

    Cons

    I hated paying for parking, that was my biggest issue. Also certain supervisors/managers do not want to see you grow so don't expect a hand out!

  11. Love MD Anderson and Houston

    Pros

    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 Management

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