I have been working at American Heart Association

Pros

You get a paycheck every two weeks. Hands only CPR is great, and a needed training. That's about all for AHA.

Cons

Cons:
This is like working in a sorority house. It absolutely is a mean girls club
Management is terrible. They criticize you personally nothing is based on work performance.
There is no recognition for a job well done
There is plenty of critiscm and micro managing
Goals are constantly changing, you'll never win
Senior manager has no clue what's going on, not do they care
The favortism in these offices is out of control

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat people with respect. Everyone deserves at least a little respect. Realize you are a manager, not friends with those employees you like and enemies with those you don't.

    A good organization, but can suck the life out of you.

    I have been working at American Heart Association

    Pros

    respected organization, flexible schedule at times, decent pay compared to other non profits, good benefits, feel as though you can make a difference in peoples lives

    Cons

    continuous change to the latest and greatest way to raise more money THIS YEAR... a lot of driving, management seems to manage from reading it out of a book first, bad use of donor dollars on travel to meetings that don't accomplish everything except to get people together because you need to have X number of meetings a year. work homelife balance can be off at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit looking for the best new thing and let people do their jobs. Praise people for their hard work and not just the superstar for this year that will be nobody next year.
