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.

    Pros

    Hospital has good reputation among donors.....it looks like.

    Cons

    Management staff don't have any clue on hospital's mission and vision. They love to promote unhealthy environment for good employees who are very ambitious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former and current employees' feedback necessary. Management staff (from CEO level to director level along with their spouses, relatives, and friends) who have been there for more than five to thirty plus years abuse employees in a such a way to give them credit for their discoveries / contributions / hard work and work with HR director buddies to set up meetings to terrorize innocent employees who joined St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by believing its Mission and Vision statements and Danny Thomas' dream.

    Long story short, please think twice before donating your penny or estate funds to this hospital, managed by bullies and their friends at ALSAC, managing world class employees in wrong way and pocketing their fat pockets.

    They don't seem to care children any more. Management already changed Danny's words "No Child Should Die in the Dawn of Life" to their version now and spent $$$$$ to decorate the hospital buildings (IRC lobby etc.) with their stone carved statues to show their ego.
