Organization in transition.

Pros

Talented staff (engineers, support staff, and production workers)
Very good middle management
Fantastic products

Cons

Organization is off balance - is overly concerned with short term views of Wall Street.
Highly reactive to both financial markets and economy.
Not particularly employee career friendly and quite unforgiving (very little tolerance for mistakes).
Executive staff has the appearance of not working together, which affects the organization's culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Return to longer term view in governing the direction of the company.
Executive staff visibly work together as a team.
It would be nice if group presidents would be more active in forming divisional culture (many employees wouldn't know their division president if they saw him or her on the street).

    Pros

    The location is very good.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, can't trust them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to value your employees more. St Jude used to be a awesome company to work for, but then Management changed and the company went downhill fast. Your employees are stressed, overworked and don't trust you! Quit lying to your employees.
