    Former Employee - Development Director

    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.

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

    Pros

    Supporting the mission of saving lives through education and programs.

    Cons

    Little to no work life balance as they claim to have it but youou better make sure you are "saying" the right things because there are a lot of cliques and only even if you are doing an amazing job if you are not in the clique, things will not be fun. Tons of politics, skewing information, misleading donors to get management off your back so they can meet their goals to bonus. Management is flavor of the day and promoted off how well the clique likes you and if you had good numbers for at least one campaign season, no matter what you had to do to get those number.
