Approves of CEO

I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent mission. Powerful cadre of volunteers and staff. High quality information. Great brand recognition.

Cons

Top heavy. Trying to cover too many areas and having trouble staying focused. Wasted time, money and energy on flying to meeting and being in planning stages more than implimentation stages.

Advice to Management

Learn from the people out in the field. Trust them. Have a more collaborative management style which fosters team work and loyalty. Don't expect more than 40 hour weeks. Be generous with praise and recognition. Put direct patient services as a priority.

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time

    Pros

    Well-known brand, potential to have big impact, helping people

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, mediocrity is embraced, lots apathy towards the work

    Advice to Management

    Allow those with a different, more modern perspective to be heard. Allow young, intelligent people to thrive instead of forcing them down.
