Former Contractor - Special Events Manager in Culver City, CA
Former Contractor - Special Events Manager in Culver City, CA

I worked at American Cancer Society as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

I worked in the Special Events Department putting on large scale fundraising events in the Los Angeles area. I loved my work, the people were amazing and supportive, and my job provided me the opportunity to interface with many types of people. I was happy to go to work every day.

Cons

I had a contract job and there was no full time position when it was over. I had really hoped I would have been able to continue working there.

    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.
