    Pros

    Honestly, ALSAC/ St. Jude is the best place that I have worked. The organization treats employees fairly (in my opinion). There is a lot of young talent so there are definitely going to be bumps and bruises but we're still successful and it's hard to think of a better place to spend my days or a more worthy cause.

    Cons

    There is some degree to professional immaturity. Career growth is still very hard but it's a great place to learn.


  2. Great place for contractors

    Pros

    You don't feel any difference at work (most departments) between contractors and full time employees.

    Cons

    I personally don't have any bad experience working at this place.

    Pros

    Great people who put their heart and soul in their work. A lot of attention to detail when it comes to employment satisfaction and appreciation. Can't beat working for an organization that is not all about making a small number of people wealthy like the ones you find in the corporate world. Instead, the mission here is to help a large number of children from being robbed by life threatening diseases.

    Cons

    Regardless of the environment, if people are involved there will be some politics. A lot has been done to provide employee driven career growth but opportunities aren't always made available no matter how compelling your achievements, performance, and fit are for a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture of continuous improvement and if something isn't working, admit it to your employees and try another approach and not turn a blind eye to feedback. In the lower ranks, frivolous mistakes get severe scolding while upper management doesn't always get to hear, want to hear, or want to admit when they make mistakes. When you think you can do no wrong, how do you really know what you are doing right?
