I worked at American Heart Association full-time for more than a year

Pros

If you work hard, you will be quickly promoted and the pay is relatively competitive for a non-profit. This is a great job for someone early in their career that is looking to improve their title and able to live with mediocre pay (hey, it is still a non-profit). This is also the most corporate-style non-profit that I have worked with. If you like structure, this is a good option.

Cons

They will work you ragged so your passion for the mission dwindles. There is a lot of turn-over and the office culture can be a bit catty.

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Hours of 37.5 and getting paid for 40, if you can manage to work less than 50 a week and not be criticized constantly. The office does close for 2 weeks in the winter though you are expected to work. This is across all departments so I guess it's not really a pro per say.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. No one cares about you as a person and you are simply a number. I have seen them fire hard working management who have been here 10 plus years simply because they didn't play in the sandbox and treat their employees like total dog meat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take value in your employees and volunteers before someone that matters gets tired of it.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great health benefits and a lot of paid time off. The mission is powerful and you're able to feel good about your work.

    Cons

    Administrative associates in the Midwest affliates are thought of as second class citizens. It is possible for very few associates to be promoted. Even then, you're still treated as an administrative associate.
