    I worked at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent summer internship experience for anyone considering a career in the fields of cancer research or medicine. Every member of the faculty and staff genuinely cares and is focused on the health and well-being of the children and their families. Despite the gravity of illnesses of the children, the hospital is filled with hope and joy, as any child should experience.

    Cons

    The only con would be that this is a summer internship experience, and full time research assistant positions are difficult to come by.

    I have been working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    St. Jude is an incredible place to work! I have never worked anywhere like SJCRH. The hospital is extremely passionate about the work it does everyday. I don't work directly with the patients but the organization has done great job making me feel as though my work is helping the mission. Benefits are excellent and my work/life balance is superb. We have a gym at the hospital there are a lot of other things to help me enjoy my time there. I highly recommend!!

    Cons

    Decisions aren't alway made in a timely matter. Other minor things but nothing serious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    100% paid health insurance would be nice! Our health benefits are really nice but if you want to be on par with some of the best in the world, this would be a great way to start.

    I worked at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

    Pros

    I worked here for a graduate assistantship. I loved every minute. The staff at SJ really focuses on the care of the children and management does a great deal to show the employees how special they are and how much they are needed. Great place.

    Cons

    Some people have problems seeing children ill, if you are one of those people, I'd pick another employer. There are areas where you can work that will limit your experience with that though.

    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!
