Grant Program Manager (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 26, 2017
The organization provides on the job training, as well as training to keep you up to par with the work environment. It is friendly place to work. Provides work life balance. It actually depends on what department you work in. I've heard a lot about differently departments, that some are good and some are bad and have high turnover. Other then that I feel it's an okay place to work. I personally had no problems and loved working for everyone I every worked for.
Advancement is not based on merit (education, experience or hard work). Advancement is based on who you know or who the leadership likes. Management not experienced and partial. Classes and training available, but the huge workload will not allow the time for training. You will be given tasks with little or no training.
Admirable organization mission
Heavy work load, micro management, job instability
Personnel Assistant - Office of the CIO (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 19, 2017
MD Anderson was a wonderful place to work. My experience with the upper management and peers was the best. They also have a comprehensive compensation and benefits package that is second to none. If given the opportunity I would return to work there throughout the remainder of my career.
Great Institution to work for. Although Management is not great. Very Diverse workplace. The hard part is dealing with management. The most enjoyable part is help people and the hardest is management. I have learned a great deal of skills working here.
The goal of the institution is relevant to all man-kind. Employees work hard, train hard, and continuously educated themselves on innovative ways to meet that goal. Management practices are fair and relevant to the operations of the institution.
A Typical Day at work included many cases/ Problem solving. Staff was more than helpful, but attentive and determined to finish the task. My manager effortlessly kept good rapport with employee, did excellent job in collaborating. My co worker was diligent, not limited to extending any extra hand/ time if available.The most satisfaction I received at my job was learning how to be an efficient worker with little/ minimum mistakes.
