    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time

    Pros

    Great mission. Dedicated staff. Wonderful volunteers.

    Cons

    Top leadership has forgotten about the dedicated staff that work countless hours for the organization. Hiring within "transformation" has been extremely political and it has become the "good ole' boys club" of hiring friends over skill.
    The HR department is nonexistent and offers no support when a family member has cancer and it appears to be even worse if the employee has cancer. And good luck navigating and fighting with insurance during difficult times.
    Benefits get worse every year...and we are a health based organization.
    Google the salaries of the top layer of staff. Then you will know where the money actually goes.

    Advice to Management

    Change quickly or watch the organization continue to lose funds, staff, and the fight against cancer.

    Lots of PTOs, great benefits.

    Transformation being mismanaged. Many seasoned, capable employees are being let go or leaving for greener pasture.

    Value your employees!
