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

Pros

Work with passionate volunteers that helped you work the long hours. Generous PTO and benefit program.

Cons

They are going through a transformation and it is a lot of disorganization and down sizing. It is going to take a while before they can right the ship. A lot of night and weekends.

Advice to Management

Less phone conferences, let your employees get out in the field. Remember the mission.

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

    Pros

    You are doing great work for Cancer research

    Cons

    Even though it is non-profit, the sr level employees are out to keep their jobs, and that makes for a very unhappy team.

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing games with donations.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at American Cancer Society as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive when compared to other non-profit companies. The people are great. It is a laid back atmosphere. Everyone works together on major events.

    Cons

    Since it is a nationwide organization, you sometimes feel out of touch with upper management. A few times, as a Temp, the full-time staff members didn't acknowledge you or speak to you.
