    an honor to serve here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Memphis, TN

    Prosat the end of my life I will have made a difference that I can be proud of. Benefits are the best I have ever seen. CEO is a true servant leader.

    Consfor someone coming from a publicly traded company (or anything other than a non-profit), making the transition to a non-profit culture can be more of a challenge than what you would expect.

    Advice to Senior Managementcontinue to encourage open discussion, transparency, shared accountability, collaboration. train middle management. hire the best talent. expose as many employees as possible to c-suite leadership on regular basis for inspiration and encouragement

    Excellent place to work, but there are always bad apples.

    Research Technologist (Former Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsSt Jude is very proud of its employees and frequently has employee appreciation events. They have a great mission, wonderful state-of-the-art facilities, and are constantly improving those facilities. Not to mention, you are helping to cure kids!

    ConsI worked on the research end of the company, and although there is a lot of really good science going on, there is some bad science as well. I got involved with a bad fit as my first "real job" out of college. It literally drained my love of science out of me.
