    Pros

    Great Work place and an amazing mission " Finding cures and saving children".

    Cons

    immediate supervisors need to focus on implementing the projects than finding ways of how not to do it. Very slow execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it little more agile environment , especially in iT projects.

    I worked at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a Children's Research Hospital mismanaging donations in millions by public in USA with the blessings of bad management to fool public to give more and more millions of dollars more donations....it's pathetic to see this corruption grow everyday!

    Cons

    Hospital is getting donations by systematic propaganda by current ALSAC, Memphis, TN. However, current hospital management is not reliable according to fellow employee(s) experience over years. Top level is made up of families (can provide names) for decades and they made good employees' contributions to the hospital miserable by violating US labor, compliance, and work place bullying with the blessings of current hospital and HR management staff who are friends for many decades at Stjude - very disgusting to experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If corrupted institutions, in my opinion, new young talent must replace the management staff in both institutions. Oldies, you all either go home or prison!...investigation only will determine in a civilized world of your destination!

    I have been working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time

    Pros

    The mission of helping sick children is of course a big bonus. Pay is okay. Parking is free. There is a gym.

    Cons

    I am not sure how it is one of the "100 Best Places to Work". Other than the mission, there is nothing too exceptional about working there. Salary and benefits are pretty standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Image is not everything. Sometimes doing the right thing is more important.

    I have been working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

    Pros

    Unlimited options for experiment designs and analyses

    Cons

    Hard to deal with coming up with an idea to help the lab, he turned down my principal investigator and then asked to do the second experiment 2 years later

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your research techs and Postdoc, they know your lab best bc they work in it on a daily basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High competitive environment, specifically for the research. In this contest, mentorship is fundamental and the Principal Investigator should take this aspect in great consideration.

    Former Employee - IT Department in Memphis, TN
    Former Employee - IT Department in Memphis, TN

    I worked at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None - There are no "Pros" for working at St. Jude. it is a company full of liars, backstabbers, hypocrites, and far worse.

    Cons

    Watch your back and trust absolutely no one there! Do not consider anybody to be your friend. Go to work, work, go home and don't give the place a second thought, because they WILL throw you under the bus the first chance they get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit masquerading as a Christian organization while fleecing money from donors that think they are donating it for the cure of cancer. St. Jude is nothing but a scam where the money goes to pad the pockets of the managers.
