Former Employee - Director Product Development in Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Director Product Development in Dallas, TX

I worked at American Heart Association full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Extremely rewarding - you can and do make a difference in people's lives
The research, the Guidelines and the training programs literally impact the difference between life and death. As an employee you have a part in that.

Cons

Extremely political. To the point where it is difficult to get things done if you are not the flavor of the month. Very entrenched "that's not the way we do it here" attitude, to the point where it has kept the organization in the dark regarding other issues and organization that are competitive for donation dollars. An overwhelmingly fear-based organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop the nepotism and the cronyism. Hire and listen to younger employees. Listen to them, they are your new donation market..

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

    Pros

    Almost nothing. The benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. No employee appreciation or understanding. Very little respect for roles outside of sales. Extremely micro-managed and very high turn-over. Employee morale was very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing your employees and calling it team work.
