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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Good pay, good start for medical device industry

    Cons

    Notorious for overwork, lack of communication, telling stockholders they will grow EPS more than 15% annually, yet are so cheap with equipment, raises, etc. The AF Division is so bad that recruiters don't want to send candidates there.
