    I worked at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society full-time

    Pros

    Pay was average. Literally all I can say here.

    Cons

    Office culture was sneaky and gossipy. Very little employees actually cared about the needs of the patients - only cared about fundraising, which was heavily tied to/influenced by pharma and truly never benefited the patients directly. While I was there they cut thousands of patients' monthly stipend (upwards of $10,000) with no notice. Office was 98% white and snobby. Horrible work/life...

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    The mission is wonderful, and you can really see it at work throughout the DFW metroplex.

    Cons

    The company culture in the Dallas office is abysmal and lacking any direction. You are chastised for trying to learn, then slapped on the wrist for attempting to do your work - there is no winning situation. Work/life balance is nonexistent and the work is thankless. National is way too involved and micromanagey, setting unrealistic goals and offering "help" in all the wrong...

    Pick one: train your employees or trust them to do the job they are hired to do.

    Pros

    Fulfilling mission, inspiring survivors. Light The Night walk events are well attended and positive events. Limited work/life balance.

    Cons

    Field suffers while regional/national management continues to be in denial.

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

    Pros

    LLS was a good stepping stone into the work force. You could get accustomed to office life, dress code, meetings, etc. Very mission centric giving a lot of appreciation back to the patients, donors and volunteers! Creating a long lasting relationship with patients, donors and volunteers was very easy and incredibly rewarding in the long term. Dr. Lou, CEO is sensational!

    Cons

    No work life balance, terrible management on a local level. Very little to no appreciate given to the staff in office.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your staff. Learn appropriate bed side manners. Emulate your CEO. Dr. Lou is sensational and carries the mission, message and spirit LLS should have throughout all levels of management both nationally and locally.

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

    Pros

    The only pro of this job was that my office had a nice view of a duck pond.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance. “Management” located in a centralized office 2 hours away. Expected to travel to that office 3 times per week. Management had no appreciation for local area, businesses, culture etc.
