Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Responsible organization overall. Great resource for cancer patients and strong commitment to mission. There can be opportunities to work with minimal supervision if you earn it.

Cons

Wow, there are so many mid level managers that are completely unqualified and have no business sense. Extremely high turnover. Terrible "business models." Trainings are a waste of time. Complete lack of concern for entry level staff morale. Sad to say this because I believe in the organization, but from an employment standpoint I think it's a pretty bad place to work.

Advice to Management

Fire yourselves?

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time

    Pros

    -Great starting salary, comprehensive benefits, and development programs, employees discounts
    -Working with local communities to provide services to those in need
    -A very involved, feel-good line of work

    Cons

    -Deceptively "transformational", many progressive and creative improvements company-wide are inflated
    -Workplace environment drastically different between regions
    -Very narrow ladder of advancement, whoever hangs around the longest can expect to advance

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your own calls for "transformation" and allow a 100yr old behemoth move into the 21st century.
