Ok place to work. Very busy, fast paced. Must have a stomach for the ill. Salary is better than most. TOO many politics (state institution). MDA is top heavy on management, and there definitely isn't enough people to do actual work. Everyone is overworked except management. MDA as a whole gives each department way to much power and authority.
Research Nurse (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 19, 2018
I am so impressed with MD Anderson as an institution. I feel valued as an employee and have grown in my profession here with the help of my coworkers, management and the many opportunities available to employees. MD Anderson is very patient and family-centered. Everywhere you look there are resources, volunteers and so many people ready to help the patients with their needs. As big as the institution is, it still feels like a small community.
sometimes stressfull working under or in patient trayline he over look good employees and bring in new hire and then they complain that the work load is to much. andthey end up quitting and being lazy /always complaining.
employees get a discount on meals but not alot taken off.like 10%
The HR recruitment process at MD Anderson is completely lost. They do an awful job at screening people fit for jobs and miss out on overly qualified talent on a regular basis. Management selection can be good or bad and is on the departmental level so it depends.

It is with much enthusiasm that I recommend MD Anderson Cancer Center.
I was a part of the team for the past 10 years and have always been completely satisfied. They do an excellent job at always working hard to make sure their patients have the best care possible and offer the most competitive benefits to their employees.
Patient service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 12, 2018
A typical day in my field of work would be direct contact with patients and family members. I scheduled appointments varying from follow up visits to Imaging and Infusion/injection visits. Management has okay but could be better in educating coworkers on advancement options. The hardest part at working in this position is seeing all that the Cancer patient have to go through on a day to day basis. The most enjoyable part is when you are able to coordinate appointments for the patients that help them save on further expenses.
Patient Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 11, 2018
MD Anderson is a great place to work. Training is available. Flexibility is limited to full time employees. Advancement is there to grow from receptionist to management. Lack of staff can easily cause overwhelming to workers
The most enjoyable part of my job were the patients! To interact with them on a daily basis was inspiring. They are the most positive patients, and just so happy to be a part of such a great institution. They truly felt they were in the best of hands at MD Anderson!
Student Shadowing (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – May 18, 2018
Walking in as a student, everyone was very welcoming and kind to point me in the right direction. The atmosphere of the location I was at was very comforting as well. The technicians got their work done in a timely matter while keeping the patients satisfaction as high as possible.
