I worked at American Cancer Society full-time for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

Quit playing games with donations.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance

    Cons

    No promotions to the Admin staff that do all the work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the people that are hands on instead of seniority. With all the new changes going on, no I would not recommend to a friend!
