    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great staff- most staff are passionate about the mission.
    Great volunteers that give of their time.

    Cons

    No room for growth. I've been a part of discussion with previous manager about a "growth ladder" but I don't think it really exist. During transformation and the internal job interview process, I think that hiring managers knew who they wanted in certain positions so they kept others out of the hiring. Also, some of the hiring was biased because a staff person's current manager shouldn't be the ONLY person on the interview call (there should have been someone/ third party involved on the call to keep it fair). Just too long of a process...some of us are ready to do the work without having to worry about the jobs and gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Truly listen to your staff...managers have these cliche sayings and have their responses ready without fully listening to staff concerns and suggestions.

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

    Pros

    The organization has a great mission, and the volunteers in the communities are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    Company has no loyalty for their employees. Performance reviews are all numbers based and not on effort, regardless of economy or weather events. Promotions are given based on who you know in the company and not your hard work. No recognition or appreciation for staff.
