Wonderful cause. Operates effectively and efficiently, more like a company than a non-profit

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    *work from home *great pay *Strong Mission *large organization with lots of resources and leading edge technology *great training

    Cons

    *upper management refuses to accept the changing environment of fundraising and adapt accordingly - always blames the staff *very long hours and unrealistic expectations for staff *no work/life balance at all *high stress-high pressure *your job is at risk if you don't meet aggressive goals, so there's high turnover

    Advice to Management

    you have some of the best resources and technology available today in the non-profit arena! You need to acknowledge that wrong decisions are being made with some programs and stop being afraid of changing and adapting, even if it means moving staff around. Believe me, they will understand! You are losing great people because you refuse to accept that you are going in the wrong direction!

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, excellent benefits, quick accrual of PTO, paid week off around Christmas time, rewarding mission, employee recognition, fun office events.

    Cons

    There are limited opportunities for advancement. Administrative staff is often talked down to and not seen as an integral part of the team. There is a lot of gossip within the organization and many people's private employment issues are leaked. Admin pay is far lower than pay of positions just one level up.

    Advice to Management

    Treat admin staff more as equals, Create better trajectories for advancement so as to not lose good employees.
