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.

    Great place at first, until you realize how toxic and exhausting it really is

    I worked at American Heart Association

    Pros

    AHA has a great benefits package (PTO, health insurance, fitness reimbursements, retirement account match).

    Cons

    HR boasts about flexible work hours, but I think this depends on your supervisors. I always felt pressured to work 11+ hour days, while my supervisors worked about 6. Public perception is that non-profits are easy-going and rewarding, but AHA is definitely not one of them.

    AHA is a very bureaucratic organization. Unless you're in the "in crowd" of managers, you're often left in the dark about projects, left scrambling at the last minute to complete a project unrealistically, and then blamed for any and all problems. With the exception of a few folks, most are stuck in the same position for years, with no leads on a promotion, which causes most employees to leave because they get so tired of feeling unappreciated, undervalued and underpaid. AHA truly does suck the life out of you. The main reason that most people stay there so long is because of the benefits package, and they feel like they can't leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need much better communication to employees. Help employees feel appreciated for a job well done. Make sure that projects and initiatives actually focus on the mission. Inexperienced supervisors that are not used to having people report to them, desperately need leadership training.
