Low Pay, Poor Management and a Disappointing Work Environment

Cancer Information Specialist (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

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

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

ConsAbsolutely 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 Senior ManagementNone - 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
