    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    When I started over two years, I thought I had found my "dream" job. I believed that I was making a major contribution to a great company and an even greater cause.

    Cons

    TRANSFORMATION has changed the feel of the organization. On paper it sounds like the right idea, however, there have been so many empty promises along the way that it has demoralized the staff. The political game here is much worse than any for-profit organization I've ever worked for before coming to ACS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell the people out in the field that you feel their pain. You don't because you haven't had to listen to all your promises to keep doing a great job only to find that you have to apply for a job that has already been determined who will get it before interviews even begin.
