    Pros

    -ACS research and the progress in the fight against cancer
    -Dedicated volunteers and board members who contribute incredible amounts of time and money
    -Patient support (although a lot of this was recently cut)
    -The feeling that you are doing something that really matters
    -Good benefit package

    Cons

    -Low pay unless you are an executive
    -Impossible to complete everything that is asked of you, and difficult to prioritize since it is all important
    -The Relay for Life specialists work tirelessly -- days, nights and weekends. Only someone is their 20s and without a family, could do it,
    -Can be depressing. It is difficult to be talking to a lung cancer patient and smell cigarette smoke on them.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I appreciate the opportunity to have worked here, even though it was not for me.
