    Pros

    Company allows schedule flexibility and encourages professional development. Highly driven and innovative atmosphere.

    Work can be intense - task-wise and emotionally due to the nature of the business. Some days/weeks are very long and stressful but staff are encouraged to find balance and recuperate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to celebrate successes and assess how we do business so we can continue giving the best support to those in need.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with survivors, caregivers and volunteers. Relay For Life is a very cathartic experience that was honor to be a part of producing.

    Cons

    Supervisors and upper management are completely out of touch with the communities in the more remote areas like Durango, CO. The volunteers do not appreciate their trying to micro manage their communities. Supervisors can be absolute bullies and get away with it. Very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with your CRM's and appreciate the hard work that they perform.
