    I worked at Alzheimer's Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Important and compelling cause that needs national and international attention and significantly more funding to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease.

    Cons

    An organization in cultural and organizational transition with staff and a new board chair and board reflective of both the new and former culture needing to rally under a unified strategy and a new national framework currently being built.

    Advice to Management

    Balance service to those families in need while raising much needed funds for research to find a cure and providing programs and services at little or no cost.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Alzheimer's Association.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straight forward and moved quickly. I applied online and received an email inviting me for a further interview. I was unable to do an in person interview so the interview was conducted via skype and went fantastic. Typical questions about background, experience and why I wanted to work for them.
