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

    Pros

    The best part about LLS is that the work is totally mission driven. You feel good about the work that you do every day and you are inspired by all of the advances in treatments that are resulting directly from the research being completed by LLS.

    Cons

    There are a few evening and weekend events. All of them are mission driven and volunteer focused, so this isn't really a negative If you are looking for a straight 9-5 job this might be troublesome for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to inspire employees by always sharing the advances and progress of the mission.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The national office does not research specific areas to determine if LLS is in line with other charities in the area with respect to sponsorship levels.

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

      Pros

      Have saved countless lives as a result of their work and advancements in blood cancer research. Passionate volunteers and board members. Staff truly do care about their work. Really enjoyed being there.

      Cons

      Data management and record keeping is sorely lacking. Information is kept in numerous Excel spreadsheets, in numerous locations, and is hard to find or paint the bigger picture of corporate partnerships. Much of the information are met in people’s heads. Local leadership is steering the ship without a compass. Everything is typically done last minute and in rush, despite the event occurring on an annual basis.

      Advice to Management

      Implement better data and record keeping procedures for donor/sponsor management.

      Pros

      Great mission and humble CEO.

      Cons

      The Nebraska chapter Executive Director makes our office life a nightmare. She makes a terrible first impression as it looks like she rolls out of bed to come to work. She constantly starts drama in the office by gossiping about her subordinates and is constantly complaining about her health, board members and personal life. Everyone has to walk on eggshells and it’s a very toxic work environment. All my colleagues love...

      Advice to Management

      Just because someone has worked for LLS for a long time does not mean they should move up in management. Also look at the turnover rate and see there is a huge problem.

      Pros

      Mission is awesome. Co workers are dedicated. Volunteers are inspiring.

      Cons

      Salary is very low even compared with other nonprofits. National management increasingly rigid: demands uniformity and not open to innovation at the chapter level. Creativity not valued. Management is reactive not proactive when problems occur and decision making is extremely slow. High turnover. Lip service to collaboration. Antiquated fundraising software. Challenging environment where you are expected to...

      Advice to Management

      Reward top performers, promote from within. Pay a realistic wage in areas that are higher cost of living. Update ancient software. Less politics more transparency.
