    I have been working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I can say that they have the BEST medical/dental/vision insurance policies of any organization where I've worked, in Memphis. The Administration at SJ really wants all employees to have work/life balance. To assist employees with this, they have a first class gym, on campus, with free membership to all employees. They offer group exercise programs or, you may choose to take an afternoon bike ride with other employees. And, the best surprise of all, we will occasionally receive "additional" days off on major holidays. Since Christmas is on a Monday this year (2017) we were also given the Friday prior as an additional holiday. And, they just increased the amount of vacation you get!

    Cons

    Wow, I cannot think of any cons about working at SJ. When I first began working at SJ, it sometimes would upset me if I saw a sick child. Now, after fully understanding the mission and seeing the ongoing efforts the doctors and researchers, I know SJ is the BEST place for the children facing these challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    They have excellent benefits. They also have many events, food trucks for lunch, and many other ammentities that are not only accessible to the patients, but to the employees as well. They also have a great work/life balance as they say you should never take work home with you. This is an excellent boundary to have!

    Cons

    The orientation/onboarding process is very unstructured and it seemed very difficult to acquire all of the things/ get in contact with people related for my position. It was eventually all figured out, but the process was a little stressful. Once it was completely resolved, however, it was no longer a stressor.

    I have been working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best benefits and work \ life balance. Takes care of employees very well. Non stressful jobs. Top management always makes sure employees are motivated towards the St. Jude mission. St. Jude mission itself is ultimate.

    Cons

    Most of the managers have raised to that position with in the institution or from local schools with minimal to no experience, which lacks managerial skills.

    Only best place to work in Memphis, If you have a spouse looking for opportunities very limited to no options.

    More coordination between departments and teams needed

    Not an ideal institution for IT career

    Advice to Management

    Be open to rotation of new blood from out side Memphis and spend extra bucks for mainly managerial roles with experience. Only than we can have cutting edge technology in IT.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work environment. I really like the collaboration environment. The most rewarding aspect of working at St. Jude is that we get an opportunity to see the children and family members. This remind us of why it is so important to give 100% and above.

    Cons

    If you are an internal candidate and qualify for an open position, HR recruiters are more apt not to submit your application to the hiring manager, but give preference to external candidates.

    Great benefits and decent pay. You get a lot of corporate amenities without all the corporate red tape.

    Cons

    There isn’t much upward mobility in a career once you get here. People never leave so it’s hard to move up.
