    Pros

    I believe in the mission and work of this company, and believe they do their absolute best to be good stewards of donor dollars. Good atmosphere, caring and attentive management.

    Cons

    The red tape of the internal processes occasionally gets in the way of delivering services effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allowing employees more decision-making capability would do wonders for morale.

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

    Pros

    Its amazing to wake up and know that you will make a difference in people's lives that day. Its also nice that everyone is so friendly. The staff here are more like a family. They have great benefits and a good amount of paid time off.

    Cons

    It is not high pay for the amount of work you have to do, but the rewards make it worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance could use some improvement. Although I understand that when working with volunteers, you have to be on their time schedule rather than one you make yourself.
