Pros

St. Jude offers a potentially great array of products, however, with recent management turnover the new people do not know what to do.

Cons

The senior management needs to better communicate what the mission or company should be. Everyone works in a silo or a cloud. St. Jude does not promote from within and expects the older employees to train the newer employees, but the newer employees think they know it all.

Advice to Management

Better communication!! Successful companies acknowledge people as one of their higher valued resources. However, St. Jude acts like everyone is replaceable and continues to place band aides on big issues instead of tackling them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    feels like making good products for patients; cool patient/employee appreciation week. Do a good job communicating between different levels of workforce.

    Cons

    Standard management struggles; normal tug of war between money and employee respect. Many very smart people lack management skills, and it'd be advisable to give them basic management training.

    Advice to Management

    Quality, Employees, Money, Respect, Good Management; by focusing on the first two and making them critical building blocks in the company will naturally lead to the latter three. All of these together lead to very happy shareholders.


  2. Good place to work, but expect slow pace innovation
