    Pros

    I got a lot of experience from being in the office but I really did not learn much. I was interning the fundraising office.

    Cons

    I wish that i learned more as this was an internship for me and I wanted to learn more about the hopsital, not as much marketing.

    Advice to Management

    i would advice that they develop a more structured internship program for students to really thrive in and learn more

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

    Pros

    Perfect first job post college for anyone looking for professional experience! Meet wonderful people and work for an incredible cause that motivates you to wake up every morning!

    Cons

    A lot of travel, and it becomes old and exhausting. Work-life balance is hard to maintain when you are working nights, weekends, some holidays, and spending nights away from home traveling.

    I have been working at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You cannot beat the mission. Every day you walk in to work knowing that you are making a difference in the life of a child. The environment at ALSAC is upbeat and challenging in a very positive way. There are so many opportunities for growth and advancement and the organization has proven over and over again that it rewards performers. The strong, visionary leadership at ALSAC starts at the top with the CEO who sets the tone and has brought so many positive changes in his tenure along with great energy and vision. I talk to enough people about their jobs to know that I am quite fortunate to work for a great employer like ALSAC. I cannot imagine working anywhere else and hope to retire here.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot complain about anything. There are generous policies around benefits, paid vacation and other bonus days off. Every day is casual day at work (unless you have a meeting with a volunteer or sponsor for instance) and growth has been the norm for the 50+ year history of this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on rocking! This organization is on an amazing trajectory in a crowded space and there are even greater days ahead in my estimation. The leadership team is visionary and strategic while also possessing a people-first mentality at all times.

    Pros

    You cannot beat the mission. Going to work across the street from the hospital, and where children's lives are saved, is so very rewarding. The work is trying at times but Leadership understands and offers great benefits and sometimes even an extra day off.

    Cons

    There is a heavy work load.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly, ALSAC/ St. Jude is the best place that I have worked. The organization treats employees fairly (in my opinion). There is a lot of young talent so there are definitely going to be bumps and bruises but we're still successful and it's hard to think of a better place to spend my days or a more worthy cause.

    Cons

    There is some degree to professional immaturity. Career growth is still very hard but it's a great place to learn.
