I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

ACS is transforming to become more agile and relevant. The mission inspires hard work and camaraderie. The people are dedicated and strive to improve themselves in this learning organization. There are many opportunities to get involved in one off projects to expand on your skills and gain exposure. There are excellent personal development programs including management and leadership development. Talent Strategy is a top notch team. .

Cons

Salary tends to be on the lower scale and there is high turnover in the field/fund raising positions which doesn't help with working with volunteers. There isn't a lot of opportunity for advancement which keeps your at the lower pay. Employees have either been there 20 plus years or less than 5. So the senior employees get stuck in old ways of doing work and this frustrates entry level staff ( although transformation should help with this)

Advice to Management

Continue to improve the skills of your people managers as they are the key to success.

    Pros

    Incredible volunteers, great supervisor, flexible hours

    No work/life balance. Flexible hours are nice to get sleep but the rest of the time is spent working. Lack of advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay to field staff, the face of the organization in the field, to compensate for the crazy work schedule.
