    I have been working at Alzheimer's Association full-time (less than a 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.

    Interview was LONG (1.5 hours). They had a standard set of approximately 21 questions that they asked every candidate. There were 3 individuals in the interview panel - the Executive Director, the Development Director and one other. Each of them took turns asking one of their standardized questions. Each person in the interview ranked the candidate on a scale of 1 - 5 based on their responses. The panel then gave an opportunity for questions from the candidate.
