Pros

Mission driven, volunteer supported.

Senior management is only concerned about money. don't connect mission to dollars raised. completely disconnected from constituent base.

Show up to events and get to know participants. Make it a top priority to meet survivors and THANK THEM for supporting ACS.

    Pros

    Meeting the amazing volunteers/survivors whose lives have been touched by cancer

    Cons

    *Working long and grueling hours, nights and occasionally all weekend, for next to no pay
    *Seeing donations go to frivolous party favors, expensive lunches and dinners, and self promotion
    *Watching helplessly as termination of important programs hurts people who have depended on us for these services and are now left to fend for themselves

    Advice to Management

    GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are supposed to be helping others.
