    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work, friendly/genuine individuals who are looking to end cancer. Great benefits and flexibility if you have a family, and don't want to be locked to the two week off a year timeframe.

    Cons

    Not a lot of mobility upwards or merit increases. Not really a downside of ACS more of non-profit. Great that they are very strict with where the funds go, and make sure it goes back into research.
