I worked at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The hospital you work to support is one of the best medical centers in the world. Lower-level workers "get" the mission and sacrifice mightily to achieve it.

Cons

The management at the charity is incompetent, insensitive and overpaid. The charity's own expenses are rapidly approaching $200 million a year. That's unacceptable, especially when its donors are expecting the charity to spend their gifts on the children at the hospital, not the executives at the charity. The CEO's salary has nearly tripled in the past two years, even as he asks others to sacrifice for "the mission".

Advice to Management

At some point, spending a quarter of annual revenue on things like executive salaries and other perks will not be possible. This is why Charity Navigator downgraded this charity's rating over a year ago.

    I worked at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is extremely friendly. It's a humbling experience. You know that everything you do at your job is benefiting a child in need.

    Cons

    No cons, it was a fun environment. Perhaps a little outdated with the computers but it's a non-profit organization so you can't expect it to be really tech-y.
