    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    An organization that truly wants to eliminate cardiovascular disease as the number one cause of death and disability.

    Cons

    An organization that has recently put too much emphasis on raising money than educating the American people on how to avoid heart disease or how to live a long and fruitful life after being diagnosed with any cardiovascular disease. . .too much emphasis on money; not enough on awareness building.

    Good coworkers and volunteers but too much of a work load for one person. High turn over and changes daily.

    Pros

    Your coworkers are smart and helpful.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, workload overwhelming, and no strategic plan. Too many long term managers not doing anything but collecting a paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and not making decisions based on management only. Field staff is important.
