Good mission, varied employment opportunities in organization undergoing restructuring

Management (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsMost employees strongly support the mission and this provides a meaningful context to daily work. Over 40 nobel prize winning scientists have been supported by ACS funding. Services are provided to patients in need and educational efforts can help save lives.

ConsIt takes many years for progressive changes to be implemented due to a culture of closed-door politics and lack of strong leadership enforcement of best practices. Many trying to advance are stuck with poor rewards from a bad economy and trying to please too many levels of management.

Advice to Senior ManagementStand up for the smart decisions, not the politically pleasing ones.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
