Great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at American Heart Association

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

ConsUpper 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 Senior ManagementHold 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
