Challenging
Colleague (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNJune 23, 2017
The workplace culture is highly competitive, extremely fast-paced, constantly changing and exceedingly complex. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the patients.

Horrible place to work
Pharmacy Technician/ purchaser (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNMarch 21, 2017
Not friendly people and they will stab you in the back every chance they get. They expect you to know things that you were never trained and they will fire you under Medical Leave

Work by the Mission Statement
Various Positions Held (former employee) (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNAugust 15, 2016
Great mission statement that the company really stands by. However working for a company where you have been employed for over 5 years and knowing that if you are being promoted from within - you should expect to be paid substantially less than someone who came from outside of the company is completely disheartening. I have seen this happen way too many times to way too many people - myself included. When I first started, thank you and appreciation for going above and beyond was given always however in the last few years it is now expected that you not only carry the work load of yourself but also the other employees. This is a company that has grown way too fast too soon and they don't have any idea on how to keep their tenured employees anymore so they are losing them at an alarming rate. There are certain people in key leadership that don't value their employees and as a result they are losing multiple departments full of people. Overall, SCRI is a great place to get your foot into clinical research as the experience will take you far. Just know that if you intend to stay here - you will be vastly underpaid (a 50% or more decrease than the competitor companies).
Pros
Great Mission statement that they live and work by, middle management is great. Health benefits are awesome.
Cons
Executive leadership is oblivious to the workers, yearly increases dont exist. Pay is bottom of the barrel.

They have a great mission of treating cancer. They have a tendency to only look out for themselves, and promote people who are not deserving of the promotion

Growing Fast--Too Fast?
Clinical Project Associate (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNMarch 19, 2016
Rapidly growing company with lots of opportunity but also a lot of dysfunction. On its way to being a leader in the industry, but middle management and innovation/planning in resourcing and processes are currently lacking.
Pros
Flexible, understanding of need for work-life balance
Cons
Overworked, underpaid

Mission is wonderful
Sr. Budget Analyst (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNFebruary 9, 2016
The mission of the organization is amazing and one to live for. However, there is not much of growth development. It is hard to balance the work/life balance. Lots of work very little assistance. I love the people I work with, they keep it fun and wanting to carry out the mission

Mission-Driven Organization
Administration (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNDecember 28, 2015
Sarah Cannon's tag-line, "Fighting cancer together", in a few words provides deep insight into the organization as a whole. This is a mission-driven organization comprised of mission-driven colleagues working together at all levels to prevent and treat cancer.

Flip Flop
Senior Invoicing Analyst - Billing Operations (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNAugust 31, 2014
The company's mission is great and in that respect I feel like I am making a difference. The benefit packages are good, but compensation is too low for the number of hours employees put in. Also, advancement is a problem...there is not much room for it based on your role.
Pros
benefits, time off, mission
Cons
compensation, no room for advancement, unable to use time off

Chaos for poor salary
Endentured servant (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNAugust 6, 2014
If you like to have reasonable leadership who provide clear directives and are focused on producing a quality product, working at SCRI is not for you. We are paid less here than most other competitors in town, with no room for advancement.

The easiest way to get ahead is for your parents to be the personal friends of Dr. Burris or the CEO (rampant nepotism).
Pros
It's better (maybe) than unemployment
Cons
Nepotism, chaos, lack of direction, no advancement, no more bonuses

Maintain 85 clinical trials
REGULATORY AFFAIRS SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNMay 14, 2014
It's a very fast-paced environment maintaining the FDA regulations as well sponsor requirements for the Hematology/Blood Cancer trials.

My co-workers and I have a very team-oriented spirit. We work closely with Pharma CRAs to ensure all necessary documentation is stored for the ongoing clinical trials.

The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the various trial subjects in passing in the hallway and elevator and the joy/hope on their faces and knowing that my work helps them have hope of being cancer free one day soon.

Culture of fear for your job. Must look out for yourself
Research Nurse Sarah Cannon Research Institute (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNApril 11, 2014
It is a busy place and on the surface appears to be a good place to work. However, you must be very careful about what you say and do. Things are frequently taken out of context with the managemet; esp. to make a point with you or other staff. Many times you work alone with no back-up; lots of verbal "we have your back" but not there when chips are down. Management always backs the doctors; even it they are wrong. Management will change the way things are written to please the doctors. They have no problem setting staff up to fail.
Co-workers are nice but reluctant to stand up for each other for fear will be the next target. This is the hardest part of working there.
Remember as they greet you with a sunny smile, southern charm and firm hand shake, they have a knife ready to cut your throat or stab you in the back.
Pros
Insurance coverage for your anti-depressant and hypertensive meds.
Cons
Underlying hostile work environment
