Former Employee - Vice President in Atlanta, GA

I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Strong mission focus and commitment to utilizing volunteers in a meaningful way. The organization has proven its value over the years by delivering extraordinary outcomes.

Cons

The organization is currently undergoing a complete reorganization which means management is not focused on key business drivers as much as they are on creating the new operating structure. As a result, fundraising is way down and mission delivery is not as efficient as it should be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top management needs to re-focus itself on stabilizing its core fundraising strategies (Relay For Life, MSABC, Balls & Galas) and hold Department heads and Division leaders who are not achieving results accountable.
