Pros

It was lots of fun to work with amazing people that try to continue forward and make huge changes in the way people view cancer

Cons

It is a rough time to be in a non profit. Raises never happened and there was a loss of moral toward the end

    Pros

    It was great being with others who desire to make a difference and help those in need.

    Cons

    Absolutely shocking in terms of the negative low level managers who continually criticize employees but rarely do anything to reward them or support them. This is un unprofessional place to work and they make no apologies for anything they do wrong including paycheck errors or anything else.

    Advice to Management

    None - all the fedback which was given from many of my coworkers was blatantly ignored! This company does not seem to care what employees think or need or want. The bucks roll in no matter what so they seem completely uninterested in creating a healthy work environment.

    Pros

    We definitley help cancer patients and their families. Huge variety in my day to day work keeps it very rewarding

    Cons

    Incredible amount of inept leaders. Over paid CEO and executives. Lack of recognition for staff that deserve it and poor staff kept in positions they should not be in. Bad leadership!

    Advice to Management

    Clean House-- Get some real management talent here who earn what they make. Correct the ridiculous levels of top management salaries right away. Get realistic about expectations from staff. Really recognize staff that deserve it.
