Great mission, poor management

Community Representative (Former Employee)

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Manager

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time


    Pros: An amazing organization if you want to make a difference… Cons: 1. Top heavy. Executive management with six figure salaries at the top and fundraisers responsible for income scraping by on low level pay. … Advice to Senior Management: Really disheartening to see you cut so many community/patient related services and jobs that support these wonderful programs, but the top level of executives… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
