Pros: profit sharing, stock options
Cons: all early benefits gone now, laying off long time employees to maximize profit
I started at St. Jude after several years in aerospace and defense. Quite a culture shock, but, it was a growing company that still thought of itself as a small company, things like profit sharing, employee appreciation, stock options, generous training all made St. Jude one of the best places to work. As the company continued to grow and expand into new markets, the company changed and was now a even bigger company with less focus on employees and training.
