Great place to work but mismatch between perception and reality in some areas
Employee (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – November 7, 2013
A + for marketing itself as a world renowned cancer center for children that is compassionate and caring.
C - For actually carrying out its patient focused mission. With an exception of a few physicians, most leave too much patient care and contact to supporting nursing staff.
A for research although at the expense of delivering better quality patient care.
A - F for Senior Management. Most very engaged, supportive, and informed. But a few who are disconnected, uninformed, and lack ability to manage their areas. Result - unable to adequately evaluate those who report to them, indecisive, and manage by consensus.
A for culture and compensation. Overall, very employee friendly and supportive, perhaps too much so. HR continually strives to make it a better place to work, although too many employees complain no matter how well they have it.

I love working at St. Jude because it makes me feel like a big and the families up here is very awesome. St. Jude gave me experinces that I never had and you're learning something new everyday. So, I give St. Jude 5 stars.
Excellent people, management and a wonderfully humbling place to work

I was only a temp employee. St. Jude would be my ultimate place to work
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

It takes a person who can deal with the death of children. and it was simply to hard for me emotionaly. It was hard to see the children and their family deal with such hard times and most of the time not get to get better. I woked on the BMT unit step down icu
