I have been working at Pancreatic Cancer Action Network full-time for more than a year
Pros – Staff is very warm and friendly, and incredibly knowledgable. The organization is continually growing, and has lots of room for advancement in the LA main office. There is a lot of opportunity for collaboration between departments, which means lots of opportunity for personal and professional growth/development.
Good vacation time (3.5 weeks to start), adequate health insurance. Assuming they meet their annual goals, employees are given bonuses at the end of the fiscal year.
Cons – Meetings! There are weekly meetings for absolutely everything - meaning you spend more time discussing what you are going to do rather than just doing it. I am generally in meetings for 2-3 hours each day.
The DC satellite office has is virtually no room for advancement. Everyone has been there for several years without any promotion. This is markedly different from the main office, where there is constant growth and upward mobility in every department.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
Pros – This company had the best benefits of any company I've ever worked for. The compensation was fair for the work.
Cons – Too many inconsistencies. Extremely catty. I was brought in to the conference room to be reprehended for my attire. One dress was too short (although my supervisor didn't know which one it was because somebody else told her), one skirt was too casual (a shirt worn over a month prior to this conversation). What really got me was there was a life size poster of the organization's president in her high school cheerleader outfit hanging on the wall in that same room!! Talk about inconsistent!
Advice to Senior Management – Be more genuine and less "one minute manager." The employees truly care about their work.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
