    Current Employee - Business Development Director
    Current Employee - Business Development Director

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the mission is very important. Because it's such a large organization, there are many resources to pull from.

    Cons

    It's basically a sales job. The mission is secondary to the revenue. The top managers care more about getting their bonuses than saving lives. They work their teams ragged and don't care about the employees at all. Those who succeed in the organization are mindless and heartless robots. This is the worst place I have ever worked and wish I would have read the other reviews on this site before accepting the job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being nice goes a long way to inspiring employees to succeed. You need to stop taking credit for their successes if you're not going to take credit for their failures. Hire more staff if you want to meet your financial goals and get your bonus!

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.
