    Pros

    This organization has a heart of gold. They really do want to prevent, treat and cure cancer around the world. You can feel good about contributing to an organization whose mission is so crystal clear.

    Cons

    There is a lot of control needed at the top so every decision, even minor ones, must go through a very long chain of command, causing things to slow down significantly. It was hard to execute on anything without prior CEO approval. There was a big bottleneck effect.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring more freelancers and contractors to help free up the bottlenecks and get more work out the door. Consider better work-life balance by giving employees the opportunity to work from home once in a while. Trust your management more, let go of the need to control!!
