Review for American Cancer Society Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

No organization is perfect, every company needs to have overhead or they don't operate. For all of you who balk at the CEO making 600,000+ put it into perspective. This is a national organization with thousands of employees to manage and millions of donation dollars to distribute. Yes this is a non-profit charity, but you still need to attract top talent to run such a large charity responsibly. The CEO isn't getting paid millions as other CEO's of comparable sized companies are. I think they should be commended for being able to get the leadership they have for the prices they are paying and a lot of that is because their staff all have a personal connection to the cause. Relays are great events that bring together communities for a great cause. ACS offers many services and donates directly to cancer research. Not many other charities can say that. If it's not for you I understand, but bashing of an entire charity because you had one bad experience or don't believe the head of an nation wide charity deserves to get paid as little as they do compared to other CEO's.
