    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    -Nationwide organization
    -Changes with advances in data to remain relevant
    -Schedule can be flexible
    -Great benefits
    -I am making a difference in the world with the work I do each day

    Cons

    -Too much travel in mid to senior-level positions makes work/life balance difficult
    -Although the organization is proactive, much of the work is reactive which is very stressful
    -National decision-makers do not always seek direct input from local-level staff & volunteers when making changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Not every issue required intervention from senior management. We put hard-working fields staff under a lot of pressure and under a microscope too often.
