"Great mission - Overpaid Management"

I worked at American Cancer Society full-time

Pros

I loved working for a great mission and feeling like I was contributing to the well being of my friends and family.

Cons

While the benefits package was adequate, in my experience management was male dominated and overpaid, while underpaying programmatic staff.

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

    Pros

    I loved working for such a good cause - who doesn't want to work towards finding a cure for cancer? The office was full of wonderful people who have a drive to make the world a better place. ACS volunteers are also incredible, passionate people. Truly the best part of the job is the people you work with.

    Cons

    Long days and evenings, weekends, etc. Management fluctuated during my time there often, and the management styles varied GREATLY. In the last six months of my time at ACS, my team was micromanaged, but our manager was not a leader - it just felt like he was going through the motions and making sure we made our numbers. There wasn't a lot of support there. Office morale can be low during slow times, and you DO experience some sad stories and during my time with ACS, a few volunteers I worked with passed away, which can bring you down a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Be leaders rather than managers - there is so much potential to grow teams and events, but sometimes employees need nurturing rather than just being pestered to get numbers up.
