    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great mission and potential for excellence. Hardworking staff dedicated to making a difference in cancer prevention, research, and treatment.

    Cons

    Very dysfunctional bureaucracy that prevents the organization from delivering on its mission and helping patients. No professional development opportunities for younger, mid-level staff.

    Retain young talent by rewarding hard work and dedication.
