    Current Employee - Administrative Associate in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Life-saving mission and great volunteers/survivors who are compelled to do great work.

    Cons

    There is no upward mobility for staff in support positions. You will rarely be referred to by your name as "admin" is sufficient. If you have a manager who focuses on your professional development, you are in the minority. The mission is great but the Chicago office is a death trap. Turnover is a serious issue - in my 16 months at the organization, I saw over 20 staff members rotate in and out of the office. Don't expect any support or understanding from HR. Getting a week off at Christmas means that you do not get many other holidays off. Expect the rug to be pulled out from under you at any moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage and value your employees - even the ones that don't raise money. Understand that a diverse workplace is not optional, especially in a city like Chicago. Your entire corporate development team should not resemble a sorority house at a college or university.
