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

ProsThe 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.

ConsToo 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 Senior ManagementStay in touch with the real reason this organization exists.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
