    Pros

    It is an absolute pleasure to come to work every day. I fully believe that this organization will fund the cure for cancer. We are not just curing blood cancers, but all cancers.

    I have the most dedicated colleagues that I have ever had the pleasure to work with from the National Office to Chapter Staff.

    We are forward thinking and nimble enough to make sure we are serving patients, funding research and raising money to support co-pay assistance, travel assistance and community based programing.

    Every day I know the hard work we put in helps to save someone's life or make their life better.

    We have a healthy balance of non-profit and for-profit experience through out the organization.

    LLS puts resources into staff training, retention and benefits... truly making sure we hire and retain the best employees.

    Cons

    We haven't cured cancer yet!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for making LLS a great place to work.

    I worked at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Very friendly co workers. Laid pack office environment.

    Cons

    The pay is very low. Makes it hard for them to compete with other organizations. Turn over seems to be high because most companies pay more then what is offered at LLS. This position is best suited for someone just coming out of college who lives at home or with a roommate and needs some valuable experience. Not recommended if you have a lot of financial obligations.

    Advice to Management

    Make the campaign assistant position more competitive salary wise and make it a full time position, otherwise your going to continue to have a high turn over rate and inability to retain high quality employees.
