Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee), Memphis, TNJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: helping the children
Cons: poor management
For the time that I first started, I really enjoyed working w/my supervisor. SD was an awesome and caring person. Since she was demoted as my super, management became prejudice and non concern. They only allowed advancement to certain workers. I'll never work in CBT again.

Pharmaceutical Services is a fast-paced environment. My day consists of maintaining the functions of the services, such as compliance of licenses of pharmacists; non-resident pharmacy licenses; personnel files and taking on the responsibility of new assignments as the department increases.

Temporary job with a lot of office work
Research Associate Assistant (Former Employee), Memphis, TNDecember 3, 2013
Pros: good experience
Cons: temporary and a long commute
This was a temporary position I filled to help pick up some of the slack from a research associate going on maternity leave. I worked on a couple of case studies with patients and associates of past patients. Primarily this included meeting to gather consent and data. Other than meeting with study members, I also helped build and maintain databases.

Great place to work but mismatch between perception and reality in some areas
Employee (Current Employee), Memphis, TNNovember 7, 2013
Pros: great place to work with a few exceptions
Cons: exceptions
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.

Stimulating and overall satisfying place to work.
Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee), Memphis, TNOctober 14, 2013
The research here is excellent. As a post-doc, there are many perks such as (limited) personal expense accounts, early career opportunities/motivations, extra privileges, etc. Furthermore, seeing what the research is going towards, eg: the children being treated for cancer, makes it that much more fulfilling.

Patient Scheduling - Clinical Informatics RN (Current Employee), Memphis, TNSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: scrub allotments
Cons: very short breaks, inadequate staffing
The hardest part of the job is seeing the suffering of the children and parents. A typical day is a 10 hour shift of making sure protocols are followed and patient's time on campus is minimized. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the kids we have cured when they come back for follow ups.
