I worked at American Diabetes Association as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Workers are all very nice and passionate about ending diabetes. It's a laid back environment.

Cons

As an intern I didn't get to contribute as much as I would have liked. Going into the internship, I didn't realize how much of a role fundraising played. I thought we would also be working to raise awareness, etc., but most of the people in the office seemed to be working on fundraising.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and Excellent Time Off

    Cons

    This was the worst job I have ever had. You are way over-worked and the pay for the amount of work expected is insane. Upper Management act as bullies and only care about the almighty dollar. Staff is not respected and often times pinned against each other. Volunteers are also treated poorly and you are made to force them to "do their jobs". It was truly was an awful experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into your EDs and how they treat their staff. I think you will be surprised.
