    I worked at American Heart Association

    Pros

    A few GENUINE employees that I have met and been introduced and I literally didn't work under them (wish had more opportunity to collaborate).

    Cons

    The worst. They make you feel under appreciated to the maximum. In the end, once they are done with the event and money has been raised, they don't give a $%!#. To this day, I still didn't understand, the people that I worked VERY closely with...still didn't seem to say "THANK YOU" GENUINELY and APPRECIATE for what you do overall. Would you want to work for a company like that? Past Reviews say it all...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is really sad when I was personally PASSIONATE about working for this company and trying to GROW long term and the fact that I have been personally dealt with Heart Disease and come from a family of Cardiologists and still treat me UNJUST on a professional level makes me SICK and personally gives me "heart palpitations". I have worked for other non-profits before but AHA is the worst particularly in this division demographically. No punt intended but there are other non-profits that really are great around the world and how can you tell..."VOLUNTEER DRIVEN"...on a side note.

    Advice? Hmmm...

    1. What do you VALUE? You may have a mission statement, but what are your "values" in your company?
    2. It's not just Who you know...but also "what you know". THINK about it.
    3. MANAGE your employees overall. If you are a full time employee, part time employee, or a temporary employee or just a contract employee. Treat your employees as you would treat your best customers. Maybe working for a non-profit company would make life just a little easier, right?
    4. Culture - Whats good for the company and for the customers and your donors come TOGETHER and they all become the driving force behind your mission/vision/goals and aspirations of the company. Keep on talking, but ACTION speak louder than words.
