    I have been working at Alzheimer's Association full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The Alzheimer's Association is a great non profit to work for. Most of the money raised goes for the purpose it's intended with is helping people cope with Alzheimer's or finding a cure.

    Cons

    A lot is expected from the staff as they are few in numbers. At times it can be stressful. No real cons for working here.
