Pros

The best reason to work at American Heart Association is because all of the tasks you are assigned will be extremely easy. The skill-set level you need to do any job there, you learn before high school during candy fundraisers.

Cons

The downsides are endless at American Heart Association. Pay is not nearly enough to live happily, even at advanced positions. The tasks are so easy you get bored within the first couple hours. The employees are all, or 99% women who don't practice what the association preaches.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would suggest management actually challenges the employees to practice what they are preaching, as in eating healthy and exercising, so that when they go out fundraising they don't look like hypocrites.

    I have been working at American Heart Association

    Pros

    Great opportunities for meaningful work
    Good people to work with and for
    Team approach, values each person's contributions,
    Once established, teams trust the expertise that vendors can bring to the organization.
    As a vendor, I have a sense of partnership in the mission

    Cons

    Sometimes the "pecking order" is cumbersome
    Follow-through with initiatives- well begun does not equal "done"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cohesive sense of mission is building better unity. Continue to develop an understanding for each team on how their part fits into the mission.

    Pros

    Great place for women to work and get advancement.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical, secretive about job performance, too many instances of management lying to employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dissociate the organization from the control of the medical volunteers who have little to contribute to developing a positive workplace or generating contributions or expanding markets
