Pros

Stable sector and decent salary.

Cons

Not much in work life balance. Also they took away profit sharing last year which a lot of people did not like.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A lot is to be wished for in terms work life enthusiasm. Also bring back profit sharing or compensate for it by increasing salary.

    Pros

    The people you work with on a regular basis become like family in this relaxed business atmosphere. Accommodating and friendly in all situations.

    Cons

    With a lax corporate climate in a Fortune 500 company, management set on-the-fly, undefined guidelines that are impossible to follow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication skills and periodic inner-department review meetings

    Working at St Jude was a challenge that requires strong political will and very strong relationships.

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to improve the business and the IT organization and someone with very strong relationship skills, a strong engineering background and a mandate from senior leadership will succeed.

    Cons

    If your relationships are contentious then there is a strong chance that you will not be backed by leadership and they will not tell you. There is no mentoring and training is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quantitative analysis does not carry enough weight within the company therefore emotive proposals tend to have more success than ones that improve the greatest number of people.
