I have been working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good pay
Good benefits - great insurance and the company offers some perks (paid tuition reimbursement, free on-site gym).
Stable company
Lots of room for growth or lateral movement
Raises - we all have the opportunity for a significant merit raise each year

The mission of the company is great and they do a good job at making sure all employees, patient-care or not, understand this and feel as part of the team.

The current CEO, Bill Evans, has brought many good changes to the hospital, he is a friendly, working-class type of man that is well-loved by everyone. Unfortunately he is stepping down in 2014.

Cons

Company has grown too fast for it's HR and management to keep up with. HR department can be a mess and needs an overhaul.
Like most companies of it's size, departments are run differently and even divisions within departments are run differently. Happiness can depend greatly on your specific manager. Managers tend to stay forever so it's impossible to wait one out.
