    I worked at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Incredible mission connections, your work moves the needle on research and patient programs. Curing blood cancers is what they do. It is HIGHLY meaningful and the volunteers and staff are very motivated and passionate.

    Cons

    Very poor compensation or work life balance focus. Highly demanding jobs with lots of nights and weekends. No upwards growth for the majority of staff. Lots of favoritism in chapters and with national/senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice fair hiring and promotion practices. Give opportunity for professional development. Renegotiate pay scales across the board. Rigid and out of date practices dampen and halt success at the chapter level. Most managers of staff are promoted to managers not because they have leadership qualities but because they have outlasted everyone else. Hire actual managers to manage people and fundraisers to fundraise.

    I have been working at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is adequate with the experience level I have, and the chapter I work in has really great employees. Coming to work everyday isn't a chore.

    Cons

    Al though there are guidelines for my job, I do a little bit of everything. It isn't exactly a con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the mentorship of my boss!
