    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great employee benefits in comparison to other non-profits. Largest work force amongst peer organizations. Great pool of volunteers. Passion about the mission brings folks together.

    Cons

    Tends to be top-heavy with many managers in need of true leadership skills. Staff often encouraged to work harder without working smarter. High turnover rate in entry level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Plan the work and work the plan. Different is not deficient.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They give 100% of the money the raise to research and patient service. Amazing events...you definitely need to attend one and see all the fundraising efforts behind it!

    Cons

    none at the moment..just wish they had more job openings

    Advice to Management

    Please hire more people in your Queens and Manhattan offices...especially a special team to put on events on colleges, schools, conventions throughout the city, special events and more! I would love a full time job after my temp. assignment is over!
