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

Pros

There are still a few long-term employees you'll meet that are consummate professionals dedicated to improving the health of Americans.

Cons

Senior management is bloated, receiving huge salaries and big benefits packages while spending big buck on luxury travel and entertainment. Their only goal is to preserve their excesses and to keep the donor public from finding out just where their money goes. Lower level employees are pressured to keep the illusion of charity going - a very tough position to be in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honor the ethics and charitable commitment shown by the AHA's management of 5 years ago.
