    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You meet a lot of really wonderful volunteers.

    Cons

    Where does the money REALLY go?

    If you spent less money on kissing people's butts and more money on patient services, the public would be better served.

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were good

    Cons

    unnecessary stress, unrealistic goals, untrained management staff made a hard job impossible

    Advice to Management

    don't promote former store managers to be directors without a LOT of HR training. The way I was treated violated basic decency and the company's own staff code of conduct. I seriously considered suing them and would have if I'd had the money to do so.
