At the American Cancer Society we are as dedicated to our staff as we are to our mission. Part of that dedication includes providing our staff members with competitive benefit options to promote good health, financial security, and peace of mind. To that end, Society staff members enjoy employment benefits that make this a truly great place to work.


Commitment to Work/Life Balance

As part of our commitment to a healthy work/life balance, we support alternative work arrangements, such as flexible work schedules and telecommuting.

Education and Development

Another major benefit is the opportunity to learn and grow. This begins with an informative company onboarding orientation when your start working with us, and it continues with multifaceted training opportunities and experiences that help you develop professionally and personally. We offer, and encourage our staff to participate in leadership development, mentoring, coaching, and job-specific training classes.

Right from the start, you’ll work with your manager and team to map a path to career success by establishing clear professional and development goals through our performance management process. Manager and staff involvement is instrumental in determining these goals – as is the employee’s participation.

For staff interested in continuing with their formal education, the American Cancer Society has numerous partnerships with online universities which offer our staff both financial and educational benefits.
