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.

    Pros

    There are some wonderful, hard-working employees, who believe in and support the mission of the organization; unfortunately, they aren't the ones making the decisions there...

    Cons

    The egregious waste of donor dollars by senior management is deplorable.

    The treatment of employees, by much of the management, ranges from indifferent to malevolent. Inequity abounds and politics run rampant with privileges and promotions because of who you know, not what you know or effort put forth.

    Career paths are non-existent...

    Pros

    Funding Heart Research, Strong well managed organization

    Cons

    High pressure sales environment if that is what a prospective employee wants

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are managers who treat their managees like children, showing no respect. Many of us were humiliated on weekly conference calls. However, that manager is still there and is successful getting results.
