Current Employee - Program Coordinator  in  Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Program Coordinator in Atlanta, GA

Pros

Great Team
Great Benefits
Popular Company
The missions of ACS

Cons

Low Salary
Not many growth opportunities, but expect more responsibilities with no raise or bonus
You will start out doing on job and can be assign anything by any other manager, even if they are not in your department.
The company is constantly changing and many people are afraid of losing their jobs.
They expect you to raise money and recruit volunteers not matters what your position is.
Even though its a non-profit...it feels very corporate

    Great mission, tries to support employees, but often misses the mark.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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