    A disappointing experience with a non-profit that has lost touch with reality

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous vacation, nice downtown location, comfortable office space. It is the perfect place to work if you are an average employee with no real career goals.

    Cons

    No incentives, expensive parking, mediocre leadership, dishonesty among peers and management. Work load balance is unfair at best, some employees have too much on their plate while they watch others come and go as they please, if they report to the office at all. “Transformation” had lead to many promotions and new leaders with exaggerated titles with egos to match.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is sad to see the "real" inside of an organization that I used to admire. The current leadership is either too blind or too settled with the status quo to bring real change. Stop wasting money on unnecessary technology, pricey office supplies that people do not need, and catered lunches for unnecessary meetings, that people in the field work so hard to acquire from the unsuspecting public.
