Very productive
Communications Intern (Former Employee), Tampa, FlJune 17, 2015
Everyday there would be an endless list of things to do. However, sometimes the management would not staff the store on the busiest days; creating a sometimes stressful environment to work because of juggling so many things at once. However, the employees were always cheerful and fun to be around.

The Oregon and SW Washington Susan G. Komen affiliation strives to set goals high. I served 3.5 months as a Communications Intern in the Portland office and absolutely LOVED working with the personable people there! Their passion is contagious! I was also able to develop my graphic design portfolio and challenge myself as a young professional. Thank you Komen Oregon for being so approachable and supportive!

mission is amazing
Executive Director (Current Employee), Cheyenne, WYNovember 26, 2014
This company provides each affiliate the ability to obtain their own success. The day to day fundraising is always a tough position but at the end of the day, after granting into the communities, it is all worth it and rewarding.

Employees have passion for what they do, but for what?
Fundraiser (Former Employee), Dallas, TexasApril 17, 2013
Pros: the passion of the employees, the people who sat around me were great people
Cons: upper-management, disorganized, fundraising department
I worked for Komen for about a year, then left as soon as I found another position. The management seemed as though they were scared to step "out of the box" because they would get their hand slapped by upper management. Working in the fundraising department, it was very disorganized and for Komen being such a large non-profit, you would think they would know how to cultivate and retain donors. My first day I was told mutliple times, "oh we don't do that" or "why do we have to do that?" Coming from a well organized development department from my previous employer I was expecting for Komen to understand how and why you send thank you cards to your donors. We would have donors send $50,000 checks, without even a thank you given, because there was nothing in place. It seemed like it was just a "wing it" kind of place and I would never work for them again, because I felt like such a small person who could not give any ideas to upper-management. I also found out where their funding went to, and I could not work there knowing only small amounts of funding (small considering how much they fundraise) go to pharma based research projects. They would never give funding to any researcher that was not already given millions of dollars by pharma companies.

Meaningful and a positive work enviroment
Corporate Relations Specialist (Current Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 17, 2012
Pros: holiday days, vacation, benefits
Cons: lack of funds
Komen is a mission driven organization. I have learned a lot about non-profits, sponsorship, cause-marketing, event planning and fundraising. Komen is made up of over 90% women. The hardest part of my job is lack of funds and the most enjoyable part is the passion.
