    Pros

    They have a powerful mission- making cancer history. It makes you feel like your a part of something huge, bigger than yourself

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, red tape, you could get in your work and just keep going 'cause everyone is too busy to stop for a minute. The skills are present, personality? especially when it comes to interdepartmental stuff?....it could be better.

    Pros

    People stay here forever. It's a happy hospital. You work with people who are the top in their field almost all the time.

    Cons

    It is concerned with maintaining it's position as #1 cancer center in America. There is some beaurocracy with that. Health insurance policy is only ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An extra week of vacation, please!

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in Houston, TX (US)

    Pros

    As a research appointment, there is a strong motivation being housed in the hospital with exposure to patients and their families. The core facilities (sequencing, histology, vet med) are all top notch. The compliance and grant offices are responsive to questions and willing to help.

    Cons

    Departmental support is variable. Adequate external funding is a must for continued work. Neither of these are isolated to MDACC, but both do occur here.

    Pros

    Work with some great and diverse people, the new facilities are nice, commitment to those wanting to further their education

    food quality depends on where you are on campus, it's a crap shoot in terms of management within the various departments. Some are great some suck.
