    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great for moms. I've been given so much flexibility in scheduling and being able to work from home if the little ones are sick or leaving early for recitals, etc. The work is 24/7 so it will always be on your mind but I have no idea how I would swing "working mom" without the flexibility they provide. The pay is good, I'm sure corporate would be better pay but the flexibility and treating you like an adult are worth a lot in my book. The mission is also amazing so it's easy to be passionate about what you do. They like to promote from within and work to create a career map with you to get where you want to go. I know several that started as administrative associates that are now Directors, Senior Directors and VPs.

    Cons

    The goals are ambitious, and the workload can be overwhelming at times. The emails never stop and it's on your mind all the time if you let it.

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - lots of 'corporate' support from regional and national HQ
    - great organization with a notable mission and reputation

    Cons

    - very aggressive fundraising goals, difficult to achieve
    - lots of 'after hours' work
    - no separate 'sick' time (aka need to use 'vacation' time when sick)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fundraising goals are handed down from management with (seemingly) little intelligence from those in the field. Unrealistic goals can diminish motivation of employees that already work tirelessly for the mission.
