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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Volunteers are amazing. If you love being able to dive into issues surrounding cancer research, explaining how and when donations go into life-saving research and some really freaking cool science, go for it. It makes volunteers feel that much more appreciated.

    Lots of travel.

    Cons

    Lots of travel, highly flexible work hours and schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs much more training.


  2. "Personally satisfying, honoring both parents who died from cancer"
