    I have been working at American Diabetes Association

    Pros

    Benefits at ADA are wonderful. The learning tools and training are good as well.

    Cons

    ADA has very little potential for growth in the field offices. There are hard lines drawn for fundraisers and very little support from Directors and above. The organization is more about the money raised than the work that is done in the community. Funds are not going to local areas and it makes it embarrassing to ask for sponsorships or donation when a person cannot honestly say that money is serving within their own community. High turnover, job dissatisfaction, poor community presence make ADA a bad combination for most offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to spend some time in their field offices to understand the difficulties faced and work with teams to solve reputation problems and high turnover rates.

    I have been working at American Diabetes Association

    Pros

    The benefits here are decent. Good vacation time, good insurance, etc. Great people to work with in the local offices

    Cons

    Organization is run from the top down. Tons of micro managing. No room for advancement. If working for the ADA be prepared to "be thrown under the bus" at any moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the employees that make you look good. The field staff are the people on the front lines and yet they get the least amount of respect of anyone in the organization. Stop the micro-managing! Let the field staff do their jobs and great things will happen.
