Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at American Humane Association

Pros

Generous paid time off policy and you can take your dogs to work. Others think you are a person of Virtue.

Cons

Self interest trumps integrity. Retaliation and Hostility are routine . Administrative incompetence and a tragic misuse of non profit dollars.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Board Members should pay attention. Board members should not use their position for personal gain, financially or otherwise.In addition, individuals should remain honest about business ventures that pose a conflict of interest when acting as arepresentative of the organization. Board members should not be able to hire their own "consulting" company.

    Pros

    bringing your dogs to work
    some fun and competent people (current management not included)
    flexible hours

    Cons

    incredibly mis-managed. Employees get no respect at all from management. In the recent lay-offs, employees were told their last day was two days later. No thank you, no emotion, just coldly dismissed. Money is continually misappropriated. Management continues to be incompetent, rude to employees, disrespectful and has absolutely no knowledge of what the employees actually do. Although they tout animal protection often, this really is all smoke and mirrors. The outside world has little respect for the organization and tends to just dismiss it. The same problems occur year after year and little is changed when there are serious problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending money on absurd ideas, get back to the mission and treat employees as if they matter. Fire all upper level management, get new people in that actually have animal knowledge as well as people skills. Preferably someone with compassion, intelligence and patience. None of which occurs with current management.

    Pros

    Contributing to the mission of protecting children and animals and working alongside deeply passionate and highly dedicated staff.

    Cons

    Driven by financial criteria at the expense of the mission. Weak Board. Unrealistic performance expectations. No career development. Autocratic leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Demonstrate compassion. Apply emotional intelligence. Be transparent. Value staff. Take a cut in salary to retain staff. Walk the talk.
