In 2010 they laid off around 100 employees due to the bad economy. But before that, it was an awesome place to work. Loved everything about it!

Mission is rewarding if you can get around disfunctional management
Director (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIAugust 11, 2014
Pros: cause and flexible hours
Cons: micro managers and politics
I've worked with some of the the nicest co-workers and volunteers you could ask for. The mission of the organization is worthy. The company is on the 3rd year of "transformation" with no end in site. It means limited job security. The micro managers and politics gets very demoralizing, even when it's not directed toward you.

The great cause and good people make up for the invasive micromanagement and boredom of working in a call center.
MSABC Recruiter (Current Employee), East Lansing, MIAugust 5, 2014
Pros: decent pay, great cause, great experience
Cons: short breaks, at times invasive monitoring, and poor communication.
As far as working in a call center goes, it is actually not too bad. You're working for a great cause and people are generally receptive to what you have to say. It is great experience for those fresh out of school and want a job for the summer. The management really struggles to communicate effectively at times, but overall it is a very good job. Keep in mind they do monitor your calls as well as every email and instant message you send. The people you work with are really nice so it kind of balances out.

Event Outreach Coordinator (Former Employee), Santa Ana, CAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: company goals, pay
Cons: management
Although the American Cancer Society is a great company to work for with extremely great goals and events I found my director managers to be completely incompetent. One of my managers actually told a group of us temporary employees that we were "Lucky to have jobs" as a motivational tool.

It was difficult to work for such a large firm. I have always worked for smaller ones in the past. They had what was called "transformation" which means that many jobs were lost. I was not a fan at all of the work environment.
