I have been working at American Heart Association full-time for less than a year

Pros

Fast-paced, Hard-working, thought provoking company who believes and lives their guiding values, American Heart University is one of the best learning and development experiences I have had in my 20 year career, excellent PTO, and time off during the week of Christmas that does not affect your PTO balance.

Cons

Little bit of red tape and bureaucracy but you would see that in most companies and in non-profits.

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Meeting survivors and knowing they were grateful for support, the team was very supportive of peers

    Cons

    long hours, very sales driven environment, everything was a numbers game, real relationship building and fundraising did not exist, leadership was inefficient and only concerned with their bottom line

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to your mid-level managers and think more about who you hire in leadership

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great volunteers, worthy mission, good pay for a non profit, great PTO and benefits

    Cons

    They hours are unbelievable, no work life balance, "mean girl" mentality management style, micromanaging atmosphere. There is no growth potential. There is never enough and the company has become greed driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking for more and more. Appreciate your people more, appreciate your volunteers more, stop booking lake side rooms for management meetings and start putting the money towards the mission. Listen to your staff, many have great ideas and concepts. Stop taking them for granted and see how low your attrition can go! When people reach out and want to do more, stay longer, and work with you, listen to them.
