    Pros

    AHA has a very positive environment, which provides support, recognition and opportunities to employees. Most employees are passionate about the mission and feel connected to the AHA's strategies. Many employees are long term due to excellent benefits and strong leadership, which connects employees to the big picture.

    Cons

    A lot of employees were terminated but compensated with robust severance packages. Proper documentation of issues could have eliminated such high departure costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great job Rich Umbdenstock!

    Pros

    location,some nice coworkers and easy commute

    Cons

    low salary,bad management mostly old boy club,if you don't belong to this circle you are out of luck.
    I worked for Integration Department as IT professional,I didn't like it and I was treated differently just because I'm not white.
    I was asked by management a lot of questions about my religion and about my home country in bad way which something you will get sued for one day .
    I couldn't take it no more so I lift and got much better job with more profisional company

    Pros

    Learn about HC. That's about it.

    Cons

    Pay is bad. They bait and swtich from the interview to you start your job. Hired for marketing communications role - job was sales making 30 telemarketing cold calls/day - yuck! Fiefdoms in different sub-organizations. They really decive employees, vendors and members. Lifer employees think they can never get fired - AND THEY DON'T NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of Washington and manage Chicago office. DC is so removed that sub groups run out of control.

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. That's why most employees don't leave. But that's part of the problem.

    Cons

    Employee sense of entitlement is ridiculous. Managers are awful, leading to miscommunication, inconsistent practices, favortism, etc.
