I have been working at American Heart Association

Pros

Great mission to save lives. Educating in CPR and saving lives. Can't say enough. Passionate place to work. Celebrates everyone for all walks of life, open to diversity of cultures and backgrounds.

Cons

There is NO movement within the field sales ranks. Some peers have been in role for over 10 years. This causes turnover of talented people who feel under appreciated and un wanted. There is NO DIVERSITY AT ALL in senior managment positons or Corporate. NONE!

    Pros

    Very meaningful mission
    Good benefits
    Management strives to keep AHA relevant and progressive and focused on obtaining the mission
    Dedicated staff

    Cons

    Upper management needs to take a stand that every program idea is not worth investing staff time and donor dollars in. We dont want to waste a single dollar on ideas that don't move AHA toward the mission. Staff end up working on efforts that don't give results over and over again. It gets disheartening.
    Its a non profit. Don't expect to get rich working at AHA. If money is your driver, work somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold sr execs responsible for projects that don't pay off for AHA over and over again. Any dollar spent should be judged by the question: will this reduce cardiovascular disease or stroke and by how much.

    Pros

    Wonderful volunteers
    Good benefits and vacation

    Cons

    Bad management
    Toxic culture
    Lousy staff morale
    AHA is like a bad episode of Project Runaway - you're either "in" or you're "out"
    If you're "out" forget about advancement. Skillless suck ups are golden, workhorse admins are abused and unappreciated.
