    Great people to work with, and not for ;)

    Cons

    Once Canadian Cancer became "National" by being associated with Breast Cancer sometime in 2018, the culture has not been the same....too much cooler talk.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers and employees that enjoy working their and don't talk negative about the company (complaining about bonuses, and wages)....non-profit?
