    Skill goes unrecognized, focus is on making the right friends.

    I have been working at St. Jude Medical

    Pros

    Pay is good. Job is simple and work life balance is great. One of the most flexible and friendly to family jobs out there.

    Cons

    Job lacks technical challenge. Management is incompetent from the highest levels to the lowest. Don't expect to advance in IT because there is no where to go. Everybody works in a silo. Teamwork is discouraged at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that have experience working not only as managers of IT, but on the front lines. People that have no technical skill have no place managing highly skilled professionals.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
