    Pros

    some flexibility in working hours, excellent pay and benefits, institution tries to promote better health among employees with gym, but you can't just join and work out when it suits your schedule, quality scientists and clinicians

    Cons

    like most places, no oversight - upper management allowed to "play games" with staff with no recourse and if you weren't a player, then you stood to suffer some retaliation if you showed signs of resistance (see this at other institutions, too). It seemed to me that some of the institutional policies gave too much authority to upper management

    Advice to Management

    Don't give so much authority to upper management
    Be more transparent with all staff members

    I worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits: paid healthcare, accrual of PTO, teacher's retirement funds. There are some great people that work there.

    Cons

    Culture was one of retaliation, distrust, and everything moved very slowly. People who are low performers do not get reprimanded or dealt with and just hang around getting paid while doing minimal work.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the low performers and better compensate the high performers.
