    Pros

    They put so much into their interns, they want them to succeed and truly care about your opinions. We got to meet with the CEO 4 different times to learn from him, ask him questions and share our ideas with him.

    Cons

    Wish they had more entry level positions open for post graduation.

    I worked at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for the kids and families at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital was one of the most rewarding and satisfying jobs I could ever imagine. The mission of "Finding Cures. Saving Children," goes without saying it was a pure joy to toil for Danny's kids.

    And the mission was contagious for most everyone who worked there, especially the management. They were fully invested in helping us do our job to do the best we could for the kids. The work environment was welcoming, professional, and supportive. There was top notch training and tons of support for each and every project.

    Cons

    The work itself was a challenge. Cold calling people in the middle of the day, even though it was for a great cause, was draining for most people. It takes a special personality to be able to handle the hang ups, the angry responses, and the rejection. Yes, even for a wonderful cause like SJRH, many people did not want to be bothered. Also, to be competitive in the call center arena, the pay and benefits were not great. I believe that has changed somewhat since I was there.

    Pros

    Great cause, great benefits, great people. There is immense support for employees to put their health and family first.

    Cons

    Management isn't always transparent and decisions are made behind closed doors. Work-life balance can be a struggle because everyone wants to do everything they can to support the kids at the hospital. HR can take a long time with hiring and there aren't many systems in place to ensure a smooth transition between people leaving and people getting hired. Career planning isn't always clear and promotions are far and few in between.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to individual contributors in their immediate teams to get honest, actionable feedback.
