I worked at American Heart Association full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great Mission in helping those with heart disease and stroke by fundraising for research. Pay is good.

Cons

Culture changes yearly. Extremely high expectations and goals. No work/life balance except for higher managment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reviews every 6 months seem very taxing on management who does the reviews and staff. More flexible hours would be good for staff who are not management.

    Pros

    Nice concept of working for a Non-Profit for a cause. There are some really nice people that come to work for AHA.

    Cons

    The really nice people that start at AHA tend to leave because AHA is not as it appears.

    Management needs to be reviewed. Managers at the American Heart Association are not held accountable for their actions. A manager is always right even if they are wrong. Heads turn when it comes to managers. If an employee makes a mistake and they are not managers they are held to a different set of standards and heads roll.

    It's all about how much money you can bring in and who you know not what you know or how you do your job or present yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. Make management at AHA lead by example and hold management up to higher standards. This will help employee morale and help your turnover rate. Make the job more about the cause not the money.
