Pros

Work with passionate volunteers that helped you work the long hours. Generous PTO and benefit program.

Cons

They are going through a transformation and it is a lot of disorganization and down sizing. It is going to take a while before they can right the ship. A lot of night and weekends.

Advice to Management

Less phone conferences, let your employees get out in the field. Remember the mission.

    Pros

    Pay is competitive when compared to other non-profit companies. The people are great. It is a laid back atmosphere. Everyone works together on major events.

    Cons

    Since it is a nationwide organization, you sometimes feel out of touch with upper management. A few times, as a Temp, the full-time staff members didn't acknowledge you or speak to you.

  2. The staff is highly dedicated to serving those with cancer, along with their caregivers.

    They are currently in transition from being facilitated by separate regions to one national conglomerate.

    IT issues need to be clarified more readily.
