    I worked at American Cancer Society full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good PTO. It's a relaxed atmosphere and you can wear jeans everyday. Can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Like any call center job, people can be very mean over the phone and you are expected to know everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more to the little people and quit trying to reinvent the wheel.

    I have been working at American Cancer Society full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    We definitley help cancer patients and their families. Huge variety in my day to day work keeps it very rewarding

    Cons

    Incredible amount of inept leaders. Over paid CEO and executives. Lack of recognition for staff that deserve it and poor staff kept in positions they should not be in. Bad leadership!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean House-- Get some real management talent here who earn what they make. Correct the ridiculous levels of top management salaries right away. Get realistic about expectations from staff. Really recognize staff that deserve it.
