    I worked at American Red Cross full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You feel great at the end of the day when you work for a global cause like the Red Cross. There is never a dull day (if you are doing your job right), and compared to many government or private sector institutions, you can make a difference quickly and get projects rolling without the usual red tape (don't get me wrong - there is still some).

    Cons

    The best and brightest employees tend to obtain high proft (i.e for profit / competitive jobs). My personal experience was that a lot of staff and big hearts, and even awesome ideas, but often lacked the skill, confidence and work ethic to get the job done. I was also slightly concerned about the overly social portion of the office - chatter doesn't always lead to results. You will be living on a smaller salary when working for a non-profit (which is understandable) - so make sure that you love your job and remind yourself of the great cause behind each project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a backup plan. With recent budget cuts, there is a certain instability within the organization which leads to a "territorial" atmosphere with the inability to solve or settle on project solutions. Also - meetings - these were the most ineffective meetings I ever attended. If you are in a management or influential role, I suggest taking the opportunity to minimize meetings and promote productivity.
