I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time

Pros

Great benefits and a lot of vacation days. This job is rewarding because you get to help individuals and refer them to the different programs offered by the American Cancer SOciety

Cons

You work ALOT of hours, especially during Relay season. Work-Life balance is decent, it really just depends on who your supervisor is.

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The one undeniably great thing about ACS (at least when I worked there) was that employees had excellent health insurance, which wasn't too expensive, either. It was a pleasant place to work and I enjoyed it overall.

    Cons

    The organization (at least at the time) felt like it was over-staffed. Many people were able to get by without doing much work, it seemed. Also, the organization-- like many large organizations-- seems to be divided into silos, and it felt like it would have been impossible to transition from one dept to another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire younger people; don't be so inflexible in terms of employee mobility and advancement.
