Pros

Work with some amazing people- the volunteers are awesome and you definitely learn a lot. Each day you feel like you are making a difference in the lives of others.

Cons

The organization is becoming typical corporate America, and staff are not valued like they used to be. Management tends to be unprofessional. The idea of doing more with less creates major burn out.

Advice to Management

Stay honest & work on professionalism. Remember to treat others as you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    Great mission. Dedicated staff. Wonderful volunteers.

    Cons

    Top leadership has forgotten about the dedicated staff that work countless hours for the organization. Hiring within "transformation" has been extremely political and it has become the "good ole' boys club" of hiring friends over skill.
    The HR department is nonexistent and offers no support when a family member has cancer and it appears to be even worse if the employee has cancer. And good luck navigating and fighting with insurance during difficult times.
    Benefits get worse every year...and we are a health based organization.
    Google the salaries of the top layer of staff. Then you will know where the money actually goes.

    Advice to Management

    Change quickly or watch the organization continue to lose funds, staff, and the fight against cancer.

    Pros

    Lots of PTOs, great benefits.

    Cons

    Transformation being mismanaged. Many seasoned, capable employees are being let go or leaving for greener pasture.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees!
