    Non-management employees are sadly not respected, althought the mission sometimes is.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    funded research and patient support

    Cons

    While being the largest non-profit, there is a disturbing environment of bizarre politics, blatant favoritism, lack of opportunity and no raises for mid and low level employees. These
    employees are taken for granted while expected to contribute their own money back to the organization and donate their time outside of work with no credit for doing so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper executives make obscene salaries ought to reward their employees for a change.

    Pros

    Can't argue with the Mission

    Cons

    Extreme lack of leadership at mid to senior levels. Complete lack of business acumen at the executive levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire outside business leaders that know how to run a business.
