Great mission - Overpaid Management

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at American Cancer Society full-time

Pros

I loved working for a great mission and feeling like I was contributing to the well being of my friends and family.

Cons

While the benefits package was adequate, in my experience management was male dominated and overpaid, while underpaying programmatic staff.

    I worked at American Cancer Society as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great cause, people are friendly and passionate about their work, great way to get non-profit experience and get further entrenched in the community

    Cons

    Interns are underutilized and program is disorganized; there is a lot more that they could be doing and it is frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase utilization of all employees; function less like a non-profit and more like a business; leverage successes across offices better
