Great place to start out of college and get your feet wet but get out fast.

I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time

Pros

The time off. Once you've been there for a while it becomes hard to leave so do your time and move on. Otherwise, it becomes hard to leave with such a great PTO package.
The volunteers and the mission are a pro too.

Cons

Upper level management. Through the transformation, many have been securing job that don't have the qualifications needed or experience. It's hard to be led by people who haven't earned respect yet.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am able to work with amazing volunteers that are well connected in the community. I truly believe in the mission of the American Cancer Society and I love working as a team with the girls in my office! Pay is competitive and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Little room for growth with the organization. Long hours and usually 2-3 night meetings on top of 8:30-5 in the office. Lots of PTO time - however it is incredibly hard to actually take any time off from January - August. Lots of driving required (at least in my area - this is reimburst but driving 10 hours a week isn't fun). There is a lot of uncertainty with the current organizational "Transformation". Although, the changes will be good in the long run- I see a lot of issues over the next 3-5 years as the try to iron out the hiccups.
