I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time

Pros

The time off. Once you've been there for a while it becomes hard to leave so do your time and move on. Otherwise, it becomes hard to leave with such a great PTO package.
The volunteers and the mission are a pro too.

Cons

Upper level management. Through the transformation, many have been securing job that don't have the qualifications needed or experience. It's hard to be led by people who haven't earned respect yet.

    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I loved the family like feeling with my co-workers and the fact that we performed under our best with a team player attitude and excellent work ethics. It was like working with family.

    Cons

    The customer service challenge was both challenging and rewarding. Help a constituent and finding the problem was very rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Oscar Gonzalez who works at the Oakland Division office is the perfect example of management to myself. His example of being a very caring person and team player has made me a better employee. He has furthered my skills in customer service. My advice is to be approachable to your employees.
