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

    Pros

    Work with brilliant researchers, fully financed while earning my master's degree, wonderful coworkers and colleagues, overall a great place to work

    Cons

    Some courses weren't the most informative (though this was being worked on as I was leaving), some coursework generally unnecessary for day-to-day clinical physics

    Advice to Management

    Even the cons I've listed are the minor-est of gripes - I very much enjoyed my time at Anderson and would work there again

    Pros

    The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is one of the original three comprehensive cancer centers in the United States established by the National Cancer Act of 1971.This cancer center is full of opportunities for junior scientists.

    Cons

    It is too big to effectively administrate in some aspects. Another important reason for me is so far away from my family. They live in Washington DC area.
