Pros

Flexible work schedule, working with passionate volunteers, feels like you are making a difference.

Cons

This is an entry level job and you'll have to earn your keep. Expect long hours, extensive travel, and little pay. If you're motivated by the cause, that will keep you going, otherwise you'll quickly recognize you can make twice the money for half the work elsewhere.

    Pros

    Great people, amazing cause, nice work environment. Management is wonderful.

    Cons

    Pay is not adequate. Plus, I came to work right as they started to restructure the organization, so advancement was pretty much not an option. They are currently still restructuring everything.

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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