    I have been working at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Inspiring mission, dollars spent wisely; CEO and Senior Leadership have a great vision; rewarding day-to-day work, partnering with volunteers and being part of campaign growth

    Cons

    Environment varies from Chapter to Chapter depending on local leadership. My Chapter’s culture is toxic; morale and turnover is horrible. HR has not been receptive to concerns. EDs don’t seem to have a clear role or accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on boosting employee morale, and listen to your employees (ex: we were given an employee engagement survey, but the poor results were ignored); need better systems in place to support the field (IT, HR, CRM software, etc).
