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

Pros

The "feeling" that you are in a position to help raise funds to help fight cancer.

Cons

Low pay
Constant demands on your personal time
Unending micro-management in order to scare you into raising more and more money
Job ends up costing you as many supplies you need will never be approved, so you end up buying them out of your own pocket since they can yield benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Where to start? Don't enter into shady contractual dealings with for profit entities who are doing more than touting you as a CHARITY partner when in fact you are paying for the privilege of bringing them participants and increasing their bottom line. DetermiNATION anyone?

    I have been working at American Cancer Society

    Pros

    there are no pros with this experience. i'm appalled.

    Cons

    I've never encountered such a lack of professionalism, bullying, and non-transparency. I was not able to obtain an official offer letter in writing and my salary was substantially reduced after the offer was verbally extended. Additionally, I was pressured into deciding on the position at the end of the business day on friday. avoid at all costs. i've never experienced such appalling lack of professionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    official offer letters in writing should be extended with an offer, not after an individual accepts a position. this is standard policy at most PROFESSIONAL institutions.
