I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary, benefits, professional development, career advancement, paid time off

Cons

HQ & senior leadership out of touch with reality in the field. Micro-management. Departmental silos. Lack of "all for one and one for all" attitude amongst departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff AND act upon their recommendations. Transformation should have taken a footnote from the highest per capita division in the nation, instead of taking "change" in the opposite direction.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time

    Pros

    -employees are there because they truly believe in the work
    -great work/life balance
    -laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    -organization has been going through massive structural changes that have negatively impacted employees
    -such a strong emphasis on event-related work and income but little focus on other areas that have the potential to bring in more revenue, such as major gifts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -strengthen areas of work that are weak (i.e. non-event related income; relationship-building and cultivation with individual and institutional donors; major gifts)
