Loved the volunteers, I was very successful but management is terrible.

Former Employee - Relay for Life Manager in Durango, CO

I worked at American Cancer Society full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Working with survivors, caregivers and volunteers. Relay For Life is a very cathartic experience that was honor to be a part of producing.

Cons

Supervisors and upper management are completely out of touch with the communities in the more remote areas like Durango, CO. The volunteers do not appreciate their trying to micro manage their communities. Supervisors can be absolute bullies and get away with it. Very sad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get in touch with your CRM's and appreciate the hard work that they perform.

    Pros

    Very nice people, great mission, coworkers and supervisors are supportive. Also good company benefits. Office location is close to public transportation and nice restaurants.

    Cons

    Company is undergoing major transformation, there's a lot of uncertainly among staffs. Not much work life balance, most ppl feel that they are overworked and underappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if there's a communication plan about transformation, please communicate with staffs.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Company allows schedule flexibility and encourages professional development. Highly driven and innovative atmosphere.

    Cons

    Work can be intense - task-wise and emotionally due to the nature of the business. Some days/weeks are very long and stressful but staff are encouraged to find balance and recuperate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to celebrate successes and assess how we do business so we can continue giving the best support to those in need.
