Pros

Working with a variety of volunteers, helping people and working from home when needed.

Cons

Crazy long hours, very little work/life balance, poor leadership, no opportunity for advancement. No training in position. Did I mention poor leadership? Making someone a Regional Director with 0 experience is STUPID.

Advice to Management

Don't base performance strictly on how much money is raised by staff. There is more to than just numbers.

    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.

    Pros

    You are doing great work for Cancer research

    Cons

    Even though it is non-profit, the sr level employees are out to keep their jobs, and that makes for a very unhappy team.

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing games with donations.
