Pros

During event season, although my job was working with patients and programs I was expected to work all of the events working more than 70 hours per week without compensation.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Helping cancer patients and celebrating survivors. The mission is why most people are working and volunteering with the organization. I find it amazing that the quality of care has not declined with the recent changes and terminations.

    Cons

    Hours are erratic, office closures frequently. Very cliquish, and outsiders not warmly welcomed. Permanent staff has low morale due to high turnover rates and terminations.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency and better change management.
