    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great purpose in the company. People ready to help a good cause. I would recommend this company.

    Cons

    I can not say anything bad about the company. I would have liked to have worked for the company more than seasonal.

    I worked at American Diabetes Association full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learned about non-profits, met great people and learned about a huge problem in our country.

    Cons

    Managers didn't listen to concerns you had, micro managers, close minded, not innovative. Locals called the local office and asked for resources and there were none to give them. I was told to transfer them to the national office, where half the time they transferred them back to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are poor leaders, they were promoted very quickly and didn't learn positive management skills, and thus did not know how to manage teams. My supervisor's turnover percentage was very high.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
