Pros

Your work is always closely linked to that of the larger cause and it is easy to see how whatever you're doing, admin, fundraising, events, is helping to cure cancer.

Cons

Like all big workplaces it is somewhere where you have to shout to be heard and as such some of the more diligent but quiet employees can get lost.

Advice to Management

The personal development opportunities are good although more could be done to encourage more junior members that this is somewhere to build a long term career.
