I worked at American Cancer Society as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Many of the people are very passionate and truly want to improve the lives of cancer patients. Many of them have great values and are people you would want to associate with.

Cons

They are a bit old school and not always open to change. Don't necessarily utilize you for your full potential. Make contract workers feel like outsiders at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open to change- be more innovative and creative.

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 3 years)

    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

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
