Pros

The reason we are fundraising-the kids
Great co-workers
Excellent benefits
Safe environment
Fun atmosphere

Cons

Management heavy and the senior management listens to the wrong people
Does not promote from within
HR low balls salaries and then does not give you any way to increase the salary no matter how much training or schooling you add to your initial CV

Advice to Management

Advice to Senior Management is to observe their directors and managers and be aware of the attrition (and reasons for the attrition) in certain departments. Sometimes people are promoted because of the "good ol' boy" system and not because they should be promoted. Other times people are not promoted or given a chance just because they are not in "the" system.

    Pros

    What you do there really makes a difference in the lives of families with critically ill children. St. Jude hires the best employees and treats them well; they want employees to grow personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Working at St. Jude can be emotionally challenging, though well worth it in my opinion. As an employee you have to be sure you find time to care for your own emotional health.
