    Pros

    Very rewarding and allows you to be able to have a sense of fulfillment that is very satisfying professionally and helps you to grow personally as well.

    Cons

    Although it allows for a gratifying career, it may be difficult for some to interact with people afflicted by a disease that hits very close to home for a large portion of people.

  2. I worked here as an intern, and it was a mediocre experience.

    Pros

    Everyone was very nice and welcoming, however everyone worked separately for the most part , all in their own offices.

    Cons

    Its frustrating when they give you a list of numbers to call off a spreadsheet and there are numerous errors- repeats, people no longer in those positions, numbers out of service- complete mess. Also, the day was slow and work assignments were boring.

  3. Outstanding Leadership!

    Pros

    The cause is critically important, the leadership is inspiring, and the people we serve are amazing.

    Cons

    Some consolidation of resources could make us stronger.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lead courageously and with transparency. You will continue to maintain and attract dedicated employees and volunteers.

    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.
