Decent place to work but undergoing a lot of changes
Informatics Analyst (Former Employee), Houston, TXOctober 13, 2014
Pros: working to help people facing one of their greatest battles in their life is very rewarding.
Cons: bureaucracy! i often felt undervalued.
This great cancer research, treatment and training center has undergone a lot of changes in recent years. Under the new President, there has been a number of work force reductions, loss of faculty and administrators, and a degradation of worker's morale. However, it is still quite a good place to work if you are in a good team with good management. Mentoring is definitely something one should look for when working at this institution. Beware of soft-funded positions since they may dry up at any point.

Demanding but well worth it
Program Manager (Current Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 13, 2013
Working for the #1 cancer center has its demands, but that comes with being #1. Managers ask you give your all at work, follow your scheduled work shift, and respect your co-workers. MD Anderson gives you the tools to exceed at your job, grow professionally, and continue to grow. This is a wonderful institution to work for.
Great benefits, room to move up in the company and find your 'place'.

Building Attendant I (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 21, 2012
Pros: stability when it came down to personal matters
Cons: not enough pay
Work assignments were easy and understandable. I learned how to clean with state appropriate chemicals. My managers were very understanding and helped in any way they could. The hardest part was seeing sick patients all the time. The most enjoyable was having a family feeling there where everyone looked out for one another.

Nice place to work at
Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TXJune 18, 2012
Pros: benefits are wonderful
Cons: too far from my home
It is a very rewarding place to work. It is very busy place. i've learned many things here. how to put together grants and how to submit. I learned about the healthcare system. The department where I work is a research department that does work out in the community. Therefore, my ability to speak another language besides English really helped me. I enjoy my job and who I work with. The only problem I see is that most of the research appointments depend on grants from the federal government and other institution, so if that money finishes your job goes with it.
