I have been working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)
The mission of the organization, the wornderful benefits but most importantly, the appreciation I feel daily from the top management, patients and my colleagues, make this the most amazing and rewarding place I have ever worked. There are many training and advancement opportunities for those who want to keep their skills sharp or obtain more credentials.
Some employees who have never worked elsewhere, take for granted so many of the benefits and positive aspects of working here. I have been here for 7 years and still feel so grateful to be a part of this institution.
