    Current Employee - Senior Faculty in Houston, TX (US)

    Pros

    The majority of faculty and staff are very committed to the mission and vision of this once great institution which is to provide the best treatment for cancer patients and to develop much better approaches to treat and hopefully cure cancer patients.

    Cons

    The new leadership is arrogant, nepotistic, ruthless and driven by their own personal agendas. Their behavior has embarrassed the faculty and staff in a very public way. They have set of a two tier system, where the new hires for the "Institute" developed by new leadership are paid 2-3 times what faculty and staff are while not being held to the same performance standards. Faculty morale is at an all time low, with >50% of faculty stating that they will leave within the next 3-5 years. The leadership style has been very destructive and has resulted in faculty fleeing from this once great institution on a weekly basis. There have been multiple demotions and firings of faculty and staff who do not do the bidding of the new leadership. The national press is now calling for a downgrading of the #1 rating of MD Anderson in Cancer Care by the US News and World Report. Although once this happens -and it will happen- the leadership will be called to account for this actions, it will be much too late to recover from the multiple programs that have been destroyed. We have become a laughingstock nationally, with a recognition that the grand "Moonshot Program" is nothing more than a fund raising ploy to provide money to supper the senior leadership research programs in this era of low grant funds and sequestrations.
