    Former Employee - Income Development Representative in Chicago, IL

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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