    Pros

    LLS is on the cutting edge of finding a cure for blood cancer.

      I worked at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Cons

      In the words of an Executive Director: “you can’t get caught in the patients’ drama. We’re focused on the bigger picture, research.” Patient aid resources are difficult to access at best; at worst a quota has been imposed by diagnosis, without Information Resource Officers providing alternate financial aid options.

      Pros

      The organization has a great mission to work for; Volunteers and Board are top-notch; They regularly promote from within, which means lots of opportunities

      Cons

      Leadership doesn't reflect rest of staff (most staff are women, leadership was almost exclusively men) and leadership roles are turned over frequently

        Pros

        Do good work, great research.

        I worked at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for less than a year

        Pros

        Great company with good pay, excellent benefits and great opportunity outside of the organization. Skills gained and networking capabilities are exceptional.

        Cons

        Flexibility is limited and ability to work from home is not good. Not a lot of room for growth because the office is small and would may require relocation to take on more opportunities. High expectations are great, but you will work very hard.
