Pros

Mission driven, volunteer supported.

Cons

Senior management is only concerned about money. don't connect mission to dollars raised. completely disconnected from constituent base.

Show up to events and get to know participants. Make it a top priority to meet survivors and THANK THEM for supporting ACS.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helping people find support and assistance, informing them of their treatment options. Can be interesting and challenging to meet the callers needs.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible, structure is non-existent, there are constant changes and transformations to the structure, policies and a fixation on the negative, that fails to recognize effort and thus compensate appropriately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire yourselves

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
