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

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Have been with the company for over 10 years and have seen its changes. The direction we are moving in is more exciting than ever. Leaderships are very supportive, the teams (income development, community engagement and health systems) are working together with great chemistry to achieve the common goals. Corporate provides opportunity for staff to express feedback and input. Corporate also encourages staff to exercise work/life balance. Have met so many cancer survivors and learned a great deal from their personal stories. Wonderful venue to introduce young kids to charity work and volunteerism.

    Cons

    It's not yours if new changes are intimating you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep sharing your passion and vision to the team.
