Current Employee - Manager in Dallas, TX
Current Employee - Manager in Dallas, TX

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

Pros

Compelling mission. Working in the mission side is very rewarding and you see your work translated into impact. A lot of negative reviews I see are from development staff. Please don't let these discourage you. I know many development colleagues who are happy with their jobs.

Cons

Like all non-profits, too much work with too few staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at where you are approving new positions. Sometimes there are other departments that need relief far more.

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

    Pros

    Mission side of the organization is great.

    Cons

    Income development is unorganized and dysfunctional.
    Senior leadership is more interested in short term gain over long term relationship building.
    Senior leaderships expectations of Executive Leadership and Board is a very heavy life and because of these expectations many bridges have been burned.
    No team work
    High turn over
    Departments work within silos and do not cross communicate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at those offices and regions who have had a very high turn over (5 walk directors in 5 years, 4 gala directors in 5 years) something is wrong with this picture i.e. senior leadership.
    Give the field staff the tools they need to be successful.
    Realign organizational flow chart to open the doors of communication between departments, offices and affiliates.
    Standardize events through key consistencies and standard operational functions, so that all participants no matter the city have the same great experience.
    Saving lives is not a competition stop treating it like one.
