Company Culture

LLS has a very professional setting and there are certain standards that need to be upheld.

Internal Communication

There is much communication done via e-mail and phone. A lot of the staff visit with each other throughout the day to talk and relay messages.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The staff can be more welcoming toward new interns and not just certain ones.

What I like about the company

I like their dedication to searching for a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma.

What I dislike about the company

I felt that I was being judged unfairly and discreetly and matters were not brought to my attention until my last day interning there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sometimes I don’t think management gives positive reinforcement (no job well done). I also think some people could be more trusting in the staff and no question their every move.

What I like about the company

I’m proud of the fundraising we do. We’ve funded researchers who’ve found life saving drugs/ treatments of cancer patients.

What I dislike about the company

The turnover rate in my job makes it hard to have continuity. Change in management makes it difficult to do a job.

Company Culture

awful. since they brought in a guy whose only job was to cut productive, smart people. OH and anyone over 40. Even though he is in his mid 50's he prefers twenty something's who cycle....

Support from management

the CEO might as well be in a coma

Teamwork

some do and some don't. The design leader now doesn't know what she's doing aside from being very dishonest.

Freedom to work independently

yes

Internal Communication

we used to have briefs and clear communication. the culture went back to what it was back in 2011--unclear, muddled direction.

Attitude towards older colleagues

he fired them all...except for a 78 year old they cant fire cause they would get sued.

Office / Work Environment

yes

Company Culture

The culture of LLS and the Stamford office is great. The staff is young, outgoing and really friendly. They like to plan social outings together, and being in downtown Stamford in the summer definitely has its perks. The parking that's included for full-time is also really great for the weekends, shopping and dining.

Teamwork

Right now the chapter office is going through a lot of turn over and management change. The national office is not very supportive of the chapter and there is no training. A lot of the dirty work is thrown to the field staff instead of the national office. It can also become very cliquey at times with the different campaigns.

Freedom to work independently

Depending on your department, there might be a lot micromanagement. Sometimes there is also the chance that things are too overcommunicated. Unnecessary number of meetings to discuss things that could have easily been addressed on a conference call or email.

Gender Equality

They hardly ever hire males.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The new ED will now only hire older people who seem more mature and excluding young adult professionals from many positions.

Overall compensation for your work

Very low pay for doing more than one job. There is a lot of favoritism going on right now.

Work-Life Balance

This job will take over your life if you're doing fundraising. There is no work life balance, and many participants will still contact you after work hours. Long weeks, weekend hours with no overtime or flex time.

Job Security

The turn over is so high that if you're willing and wanting to stay, they will let you.

Challenging Work

Challenging at first, but becomes redundant

Suggestions for improvement

  • Reward your staff who goes above and beyond. Don't waste time on the little stuff, but focus on the big picture.

What I like about the company

The money does go back to the mission, and working with the families affected by the disease is rewarding. There is a lot of paid time off if you're able to figure out when to take it.

What I dislike about the company

The management. Very unprofessional and it has become very cliquey, and micromanaged.

A lot of things happen behind closed doors, and hush hush. When sometime major happens, there is no real explanation.

Company Culture

It was great until management change and they started ruling by fear

Work-Life Balance

While I was there under the professional management, yes, there was a wonderful work-life balance

Suggestions for improvement

  • think about the employees who feel the passion of the mission. Think about the loyalty and time that the employees put into their jobs. Think .

What I like about the company

Until management change...the passion to the mission, the teamwork and smart respectful management.

What I dislike about the company

When new marketing management came in, they were only interested in hiring their own people at half the age and experience of the people he fired.
