Wished I had known more about reality than just the name recogniion

DetermiNATION Coordinator (Former Employee)

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

ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementWhere 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?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
