A great national brand to work for in a life-saving field, tempered by fragmented and variable local efforts

Pros

-Great starting salary, comprehensive benefits, and development programs, employees discounts
-Working with local communities to provide services to those in need
-A very involved, feel-good line of work

Cons

-Deceptively "transformational", many progressive and creative improvements company-wide are inflated
-Workplace environment drastically different between regions
-Very narrow ladder of advancement, whoever hangs around the longest can expect to advance

Advice to Management

Listen to your own calls for "transformation" and allow a 100yr old behemoth move into the 21st century.

    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 Management

    Be open to change- be more innovative and creative.
