Loved the mission, politics much to prevalent to stay on track.

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

Pros

The best reason to work with the American Cancer Society is the volunteers. Enabling people to make a difference in the fight against cancer is incredible. It also served my own need to be a part of the solution.

Cons

Too many ladder climbers and politics in this organization. It is natural to want to further your own career, but when it comes at a cost to others and the organization, there needs to be some changes in the way things are done.. The culture is one of micromanagement in many cases and big egos that get in the way of the mission.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay in touch with the real reason this organization exists.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than a 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.
