Inefficient charity with unsustainable business model

Marketing (Former Employee)
Memphis, TN

I worked at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe hospital you work to support is one of the best medical centers in the world. Lower-level workers "get" the mission and sacrifice mightily to achieve it.

ConsThe management at the charity is incompetent, insensitive and overpaid. The charity's own expenses are rapidly approaching $200 million a year. That's unacceptable, especially when its donors are expecting the charity to spend their gifts on the children at the hospital, not the executives at the charity. The CEO's salary has nearly tripled in the past two years, even as he asks others to sacrifice for "the mission".

Advice to Senior ManagementAt some point, spending a quarter of annual revenue on things like executive salaries and other perks will not be possible. This is why Charity Navigator downgraded this charity's rating over a year ago.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
