    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, loved the volunteers

    Cons

    Poor leadership and upper management, they ignore Ethics Complaints even though employees are at times required to make them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to Ethics Complaints, especially repeated ones about the same manger. Allow on-site managers to make more decisions without intrusion from above. Practice what you preach about treating people well. Don't promote based on tenure with company, promote managers based on management ability.
