I worked at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society full-time

Pros

Fun coworkers, a great mission, and working with an inspiring group of volunteers and honorees on a daily basis.

Cons

Not many opportunities to advance your career, work schedules often conflicted with work/life balance (working nights and weekends), and a high-turnover rate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote more often internally and take more time to invest in current employees career development and maybe the turnover rate would decrease.

    I have been working at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Best reasons I can think of is its mission and those staff who work at the bottom (assistants, interns and temps) are truly genuine.

    Cons

    I have way too much to say here. MICROMANAGING AT ITS WORST. First off, they let people go for no reason, have you sign a contract to confirm that you quit on your own so they don't have to pay you unemployment and WILL NOT give you a reason as to why they let you go. Secondly, they have no respect for their staff. The entire organization was jewish women, no offense but where is the DIVERSITY? and finally, they instill such fear in you that you lose all your confidence and passion for working in nonprofits. I had a horrible experience at the Red Cross but this place topped it off. DO NOT WORK HERE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP micromanaging, diversify your org, and HAVE A HEART FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES.
