I have been working at American Cancer Society

Pros

American Cancer Society is very focused on promoting their services/mission.

Cons

With regards to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, fundraising seemed to be secondary to the number of participants. This was seen as "getting their name/services out there" rather than raising funds for the cause.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Most 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.

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for the smart decisions, not the politically pleasing ones.
