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

    Pros

    We have a shared mission and the majority of employees truly care about this - it is more than a job here. We see sick children every day and it helps keep the focus on why we are here. The benefits are excellent - health benefits are top notch, vacation time and sick time are generous. Work/life balance is encouraged. HR tries to raise the bar in immigration, benefits, recruiting and retention. Collaboration is strong at St. Jude. Top research and clinical care are the priority every day.

    Cons

    Challenges include management that needs more training in leadership. Politics can be higher here due to the strong academic nature of the work. Disparity among the departments - some are terrific and others need help so the employee experience varies based on where one works.

    Advice to Management

    Set standards for PIs and management that raise the overall bar of running departments; promotions are given to those who have been here a long time but many don't know much about how to manage so the gap remains. Shortening the gap of skill in this area should be a priority.

    Pros

    is a great place to be a postdoc, the average pay combined with the low cost of living makes your salary go far. All the fellow community is very friendly and you can send mass emails asking questions or asking for reagents and someone always answers. it is pretty cool.

    Cons

    it is in memphis. not such a cool city
