    I have been working at American Humane Association part-time

    Pros

    This was a great job before new management takeovers several years ago

    Cons

    Management continues to become increasingly top-heavy. Most "boots on the ground" jobs have been eliminated while upper-level management positions continue to increase in number and salary. This organization has thrown aside ethics and its mission in favor of gaining publicity and money. American Humane used to work to help children and animals; now we work to associate with C-list celebrities and create dog award shows. When mistakes are made, blame is passed off to people lower in the organization or to people outside of the organization. Almost all the employees who knew anything about animals and spoke up for them have been let go. People who speak up are labeled as "negative" and threatened with their jobs. As a result, no one speaks in meetings anymore except management. A culture of fear has been created; it's been made clear that if you don't shut up and drink the Kool-Aid, you're gone. A shelter veterinarian whose primary job was euthanizing cats and dogs is now heading up the film unit, and American Humane is finding veterinarians to replace animal safety representatives (an extremely specialized job that veterinarians are not suited to) in one of the most illogical changes in structuring I've seen. Anyone considering working here should first read the Hollywood Reporter article "Animals Were Harmed" for some perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that management resign, but the organization has been routinely compared to a sinking ship so it's probably too late.
