Assistant to Head Chair (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – September 27, 2017
I was lucky enough to help fundraise for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society for many years, with many different teams. We held banquets, lunches, breakfast, the annual Light the Night walk to raise money. It was an eye opening experience and I would highly recommend volunteering or applying for a job.
Workplace culture in the Austin office is relatively laidback and it is a collaborative team environment. Management could use some work from the top alll the way down. I learned a great deal about fundraising, marketing, building relationships with donors and sponsors, sales, etc. The schedule can be overwhelming during campaign season and there is not always a great work/life balance from Jan-June. It can be high stress at times.

The LSA underwent a huge re-shuffling a few years back. The new (at the time) top national leadership angled to expunge people who had been there for years and create an agency in the image of the new CEO.

Special Events Aide (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 4, 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed going to work every day at LLS. The Senior/Executive staff interact with everyone in the office, there is no division. They also strongly support the well being of the staff - bringing in a therapy dog, yoga classes and other healthy initiatives. Holiday potlucks and happy hours are just a few ways that the staff gets to know one another. Most importantly, everyone fully supports the mission and is willing to go to any event to lend a helping hand.
A good organization doing a fine job to help others.
Telerecruiter (Former Employee) – Natick, MA – August 28, 2014
LLS had a n excellent work environment; people pulled together. I liked the challenge of raising money for people who are less fortunate. We started early at 7:30 and finished at 3:00. Schools were called and a conversations were started with class representatives and principals to sign on for the two-week program of involving students in gathering spare change at home and bringing it in to their classrooms where it was tallied. Teachers and nurses were the natural person to approach with our pitch.Not signing up every school is the hardest part of the job. Most enjoyable was the daily satisfaction of helping others in life.
Close to home, just a 20 minute commute, worthy endeavor for me.
Great place to work and great organizational cause

A typical day at work consist of processing A/P, ensuring all revenue is coded to the correct accounts, posting journal entries to the cash template, doing adjusting entries, month end bank reconciliation, process chapter expense reports via Concur. Ensure staff is following proper internal controls.
I loved working there, being that have a passion for helping others. I would come in ready to work. Check voice mails and emails, make my call backs, then I would finish any work that I was working on.
Campaign Manager, Team in Training (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – April 18, 2013
I had a great experience at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. From the National Support to the local chapter volunteers and "heroes," I got to know some great people, further my experience in management and make a contribution to the fight against blood cancers. As a Team in Training Campaign Manager, my hours were a bit cumbersome, and the brand is experiencing some difficulties, but it was worth the effort.
