Pros

You get to fight cancer on a national level, which makes you feel good. The volunteers you work with are passionate and fun, and are probably the best part of the job.

Cons

Depending what office you are in, there can be little room for growth. Salary is on the low side. You are encouraged to be entrepreneurial and reinvent, but are often stymied when you try to. They throw around the word "support" a lot and don't give you what you really need. There is a lot of overlap in duties.

Advice to Management

Let your income staff actually be creative and give them the chance to listen to what the community wants. Hire from within if you can. Be smart when you are supporting folks-do successful income staff really need 2 supervisors, or are there some new folks who really could use the help?

    Pros

    Great working environment for those who are caring, loving and people oriented.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better. Corporate is very political.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the politics. You are supposed to be a not for profit.
