I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Its amazing to wake up and know that you will make a difference in people's lives that day. Its also nice that everyone is so friendly. The staff here are more like a family. They have great benefits and a good amount of paid time off.

Cons

It is not high pay for the amount of work you have to do, but the rewards make it worth it.

Advice to Management

Work-life balance could use some improvement. Although I understand that when working with volunteers, you have to be on their time schedule rather than one you make yourself.

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers were great. And you can go home at the end of the day feeling as if you helped people. They're always hiring and it's pretty easy to get your job back if you haven't burned bridges.

    Cons

    The place feels stagnant. Not a lot of upward movement.
