Working at LLS was a mixed bag, and I am not sure I would recommend them to people seeking work.

I worked at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Pros

Excellent salary compared to other non-profits.
Decent benefits.
Organization does benefit cancer patients through financial assistance and education.

Cons

Little opportunity for growth or raises.
Upper management is blind to how dissatisfied the staff is.
Poor managers mean that jobs remain stagnant and uninteresting.
Cut-throat and corporate-like environment where ideas are stolen.
Poor communication within departments, let alone between departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees and take suggestions seriously. This was probably the worst place I have ever worked due to poor management, and lack of improving employee environment. Requests were denied or ignored and my career suffered. It would have been much better if management of people and projects were fairer and took account of employees' desired growth and success, not just the bottom line.

    I have been working at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

    Pros

    The patients and the ability to be compassionate with them.

    Cons

    Those same patients you have to be compassionate with are the target of the organization preying on their emotional and psychological conditions requesting they raise thousands of dollars. Senior Leadership is superficial, cliquey, in this area, racist and totally blind to the society in the region. The pressure on the employee is too much. 6 reviews in 3mts, The positions are sales positions to meet heavy goals set by the senior managements to incur bonuses. Reviews are one sided. No praise. I actually had the Exec Dir tell me that my work was "sh*t" after securing several big companies in the region in a month. The Directors are daft incompetent and white trash who frown upon people with money. Complaints to national organization fall on def ears. Tons of intimidation. A nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. Find a job outside of patient care. Perhaps in the pharm industry where you can be indirectly sharks.
