Even if you don't interact with patients as part of your job, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is designed so that patients and employees mix in the cafeteria in the heart of the building. It gives each worker more motivation to do the best they can at their job to contribute to the health and well-being of the patients at St. Jude.
Health benefits, free on-campus gym access, banking center and post office located within the hospital
I can't say enough great things about St Jude. Everyone is like one big family. They provide so many opportunities for nurses to advance and also ensure that only the best care is given. LOOOVE St Jude so much!!!
The atmosphere at St. Jude is second to none. Each individual knows that no matter what role he/she plays, the ultimate goal is saving children's lives. This message drives each person to push themselves as far as they can, and although the patients are being treated for some of the most severe diseases in the world, the place resonates hope because there is a relentless belief that together, St. Jude can accomplish its goal: not allowing a child to die in the beginning of his/her life.

Information Services Intern (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 20, 2016
SJCRH's Information Services internship provided an in-depth experience of Healthcare IT best practices and support systems. As a participant in summer 2016, I received access to senior level departmental executives through their mentor program, shadowed a variety of unique positions within their IS division, and was challenged to collaborate with other interns on a number of constructive assignments. My appreciation and knowledge of the invaluable services provided by Healthcare IT professionals greatly increased during my internship at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The hardest part of the job was constantly changing priorities and expectations. I was often isolated, even from co-workers. Staff are expected to come in early, work through lunch, and stay late. The most enjoyable part of the job was standing in for the Research Participant Advocate for a consent conference. This allowed me to meet and talk to patients/parents and other St. Jude staff.
Good pay, great benefits, and overall culture and campus.
Facilities Environmental Service Supervisor (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – November 29, 2016
Director in EVS divided staff against each other, he wasn't far at all with his department. Complaining to the CEO didn't help at the time. They later find out about all his wrong doing then fired him.

Registered Nurse Solid Tumor Inpatient Unit (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 10, 2016
St. Jude is a wonderful place to take your children for cancer treatment. It's a wonderful place to work as well, however it can also be a dark place to work. We have miracles but we also deal with death and bad news on a daily basis and eventually it can take it's toll. My manager is amazing and I work with some of the toughest people I know. They handle stress well. The hardest part of my job is saying goodbye to a child I've gotten close to as they take their final breath. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing kids come back cancer free to visit us.
Great facility, state of the art equipment, good management
