    Wasn't able to make the difference I was hoping to make due to internal politics in such a small organization.

    I worked at American Lung Association full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It has a great mission with wonderful volunteers.

    Cons

    Heavy staff turnover, not enough board leadership, mixed messaging in branding, no staff development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions." There was not true leadership at the helm - learn to actually like the people who work there - it's like magic when you do. You don't demand respect, you earn it.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
