Pros

Decent place to work for, had very competitive benefits packages till 2010 such as profit sharing but all that got cut off because of the recession I guess. Being a medical devices company, it does provide better job security than some other sectors.

Cons

Sylmar location is not the best place to be in. The management structure is a bit over saturated I think.

    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 Management

    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

    It is a great company to work for overall. I have a good work-life balance, coworkers, and benefits and compensation are fair. I plan on spending a while at St. Jude.

    Cons

    St. Jude, as with many large companies, isn't as efficient as it should. Mediocre performance is deemed as acceptable, which is frustrating when you are a high-performing person.
