Pros

You are helping save lives. There are many departments that allow work from home. There are very talented people working there, many of whom have been there for a long time. Depending on the role, it could be very satisfying. The interview process consists of very long interviews, so be prepared.

Cons

The hours! The workload was never ending and frankly unreasonable. There was no bonuses during my last 2 years due to the economy, and you are reviewed constantly (bi-annually, plus peer reviews, 360 reviews). The workload was due to never ending, understaffed projects.

    I worked at American Heart Association as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Had option to do administrative work or go out in the field for project based work. Volunteering hours are very flexible. Worked with very wonderful people and people are generally very grateful of what you are doing.

    Cons

    Since this was a volunteer experience, there was no pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold the hands of volunteers a bit more in project based work so they can work more productively.
