Former Employee - Community Representative
Former Employee - Community Representative

I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great volunteers and mission, good benefits and salary for a non-profit, team building and idea sharing with other community representatives

Cons

Long hours, meetings just to meet, management discourages their employees from having a personal life (significant other, children, outside activities), managers do not treat people equally

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being so political and treat people equally and fairly. Do not lie to us to our face about advancement opportunities.

    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

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