A fantastic organization to work for, but they are SLOW

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGreat benefits. Great people. A cause that you can get behind. Supportive environment.

ConsThis is an enormous non-profit. They are extremely risk-averse and careful about everything they so, which means that every decision they make and every request that gets made of them is processed very slowly. Don't expect any quick raises or promotions. Also, people who are horrible at their jobs will stick around for much longer than they should because the organization won't make the decision to let them go.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow your employees how much you value them by giving them incentives to do their jobs well.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Entrenched in politics and gossip, with little advancement toward mission. Restructuring rather than working.

    Program Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Retirement plan and health insurance. Cons: 1) I been here 7 years--but management was/is stingy with pay, title and promotion. Raises never above 2.5% despite exceeding goals. Other staff were given… Advice to Senior Management: Realize this is a professional business. Treat it as such. Invest in your staff. Cut the politics… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
