    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fulfilling and engaging work
    Great benefits, decent pay structure
    Well-respected organization makes securing donations and volunteers 'easy'

    Cons

    Terrible Work/Life balance.
    Goals, though noble, are not realistic and not possible to obtain.
    Directors are not well trained on how to manage, train, or retain talent. Change agents are given poor reviews; innovative thinkers not welcome, only rote 'in the box' behavior is rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less 'yes-men' and keep people who challenge you to do better, sometimes by doing different.
