I have been working at American Cancer Society as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

If you have a passion for Cancer research, this company is easy to work for. I serve under a wonderful woman who is the community event coordinator, and it is very fun to be around her, and working all toward a single goal.

Cons

The company itself is very much so behind the times. The office does not have wifi and makes it tough for interns to bring in laptops to work.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cancer affects almost every person in this country. The American Cancer Society is a organization dedicated in finding early detection and the cure for cancer. As a volunteer for the organization, you will feel that you are doing your part in finding the cure. There are a wide array of opportunities to participate/volunteer for the cause. Start a fundraising team or join the committee are just a couple ways to volunteer.

    Cons

    The website is in dire need of an overhaul. As a volunteer, it should be user friendly to help organize & coordinate the local Relay for Life. It has great information, and provides resources that is very beneficial but user interface is clunky and it very easy to get lost within the site.
