    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Volunteers, PTO(but you can never take the time off)

    Cons

    No work/life balance(just because they will not hire enough staff, so everyone is overworked) no support from upper management, an overabundance of conference calls that go nowhere and inadequate training-it is as if you are set up for failure. I now know why there is such a high turnover rate in my position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees and reconstruct the duties of the field staff that is respectful to their lives and sanity! No wonder you cannot keep anyone in these positions.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
