    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 (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Everyone buys into the mission of finding cures & saving children. It is a very diverse community both the patients and the employees. I work with physicians and scientists that are truly "top of their field". People are happy to share their knowledge.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is the realization that not all of our patients have a good outcome.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It would be helpful to keep staff better informed when changes are made & departments are reorganized. Sometimes it is difficult to find the contact person we need to reach.
