I worked at American Cancer Society

Pros

Fulfilling work - I truly felt like I was making a difference every day on the job. Interacting with constituents was very rewarding.

Cons

Outdated technology equipment especially for non-exempt employees, contributed to inefficiency of the position. Needs to be more up-to-date with social media trends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great work culture and very competent upper management. Please focus on more effective and organized delegating to avoid employee downtime and confusion.

    I was proud to work there because of what they did, but not the people I worked with

    I worked at American Cancer Society

    Pros

    Large, well-known organization, volunteers are great to work with and will make you feel good about what you are doing. I would recommend it as a first job.

    Cons

    The leadership is not great and it's a non-profit so they are always looking for ways to cut money (staff) in a down economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like leaders and not like you are entitled because you are working for a large national non-profit.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society

    Pros

    a good amount of vacation, personal and sick time, Salary is higher than other non profit comparable positions

    Cons

    You will work evenings and weekends, some goals are unrealistic, and management is not promoted from within. They bring in people from the outside to manage many times-so they have no idea how to lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within.
