Great place to work, if you are ready to work hard.

Executive Director (Current Employee)
Grand Rapids, MI

I have been working at American Cancer Society

ProsAmazing connection to the mission, unbelievably dedicated and sharp senior leadership. If you know how to work well with volunteers, there is no limit to what you can accomplish at ACS.

ConsSometimes the strong committment of staff and leadership leads to a poor work life balance. Working with volunteers means you have to be available nights and weekends, and they seem to add up. If you're not interested in working with volunteers, you will not be successful at ACS.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work listening to your staff, and help them try to find a better work life balance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
