Good Environment To Raise Money for a Great Cause
Telefundraiser (Former Employee), East Lansing, MIApril 7, 2014
Pros: family atmosphere and spirit. working for a rewarding cause.
Cons: worked via a temp agency- seemed to have high turnover
Great to be in the big room raising money for a wonderful and meaningful cause.

Working at the American Cancer Society was incredibly fulfilling for me. The amount of money I raised for such a great non-profit organization and cause was especially rewarding for me, since Cancer has touched the life of my family.

Absolutely nothing bad I can speak – more... of during my time at the ACS. – less

Director of Marketing Communications (Former Employee), Oakland, CAMarch 28, 2014
Management and many other employees work (not very hard) to raise more money to support themselves. Mission delivery and services for cancer patients and their families is not the priority. A lot of wasted time and money.

This is a summer camp 0ne weak long for kids with cancer. I am a cancer surviver from a braintumor back when I was five yers old in 1990. I wus going to this camp since 1990. As we get older we come back as counselors in training and after graduating from high school we may come back as volunteering. It is nice to help all the younger kids as thay come – more... in to the camp as new ones for the first time. As having enything going on with cancer in yoursilf or family, it is the way to help the kids have fun and tell them that thay can do it to become a cancer surviver and thay can have alot of new frindes. – less

Wonderful people and cause, horrible work life balance
n/a (Former Employee), High PlainsMarch 24, 2014
Pros: health insurance
Cons: lack of work/life balance, low pay
Give up evenings and weekends, get paid on a very low salary even for non-profit.... but if you work for a cause and not the money, you will be greatly appreciative. They have great health insurance to combat the salary.

Rewarding and encouraging environment helping and supporting cancer patients in need
Cancer Information Specialist (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 22, 2014
Pros: team building activities, ability to travel
Cons: having to pay for parking when going to work
My general work day consisted of speaking with cancer patients and their families regarding various needs from transportation to treatment to assistance with obtaining food. I also wrote training manuals and facilitated training classes for new and current staff. Along with my general duties, I was responsible for ordering office supplies while adhering – more... to a small budget as well as maintaining office equipment. While working at the American Cancer Society, I learned that I could do more than I thought I could do. This job gave the me the chance to discover skills that I did not know I had. It taught me to not limit myself and to go beyond the call of duty. My co-workers were a great group of people. We all got along very well and helped each other with whatever was needed. The hardest part of my job was discovering that one of the patients that I had assisted passed away. It was very sobering but it also made me want to do more to help those that were still alive to fight to see another day. The most enjoyable part of my job was just knowing that each day I helped someone make it to treatment or to get food and even clothes. I enjoy helping people and that was the most rewarding part of my job. – less

Cause driven work
Manager (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INMarch 12, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, flexibility
Cons: work/life balance
Working for the American Cancer Society was a job driven by a passion for the cause. Getting to work for the community and with the team at ACS was a definite perk. The biggest drawback was the lack of work/life balance. Despite the job offering flexibility with time, work/life balance was a struggle.

The organization has a very upbeat and positive attitude, despite many of the volunteers having personal losses from cancer.
