I worked at American Cancer Society full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Well known organization, they treat their employees very well and promote from within.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems like a lot of work for not very much pay, but you get good benefits and lots of days off.
