    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They understand that there's a very important mission that we need to stay on top of, period. Passionate staff & leadership; when there was an issue, it was investigated and resolved. They are extremely congnizant of donor dollars. Great benefits.

    Cons

    As with every business, there are some sour apples but as long as you know and understand the reason ACS exists and believe in the mission, there are no cons. I had some challenges but because of my experience and mission focus, I didn't let anything or anyone deter me from doing the best I could to help ACS beat cancer.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits. and incredibly passionate volunteers!

    Cons

    Money hungry, its all about numbers. No pay raises. Nothing is ever good enough. Burnt out due to long hours and lots of “push” to raise more money. Best advice, ask a ton of questions during your interview and search out former employees to get some REAL perspective.
