Pros

The ACS was one of my favorite places to work. The staff you work with is great and the cause is meaningful. Obviously they can't pay you a lot because money has to go to the cause, but there is a great work life balance.

Cons

Technology can be improved, but they are working on it.

Advice to Management

Keep doing a great job

    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    Outdated technology equipment especially for non-exempt employees, contributed to inefficiency of the position.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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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