    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The Red Cross possesses an amazing mission and going to work everyday knowing what you do is saving lives is what's kept me here.

    Cons

    Management expects people to take on 2, 3, even 4 different roles at a time with no salary bump. Their leave policy in my division is this: the only excusable leave is bereavement leave. They are highly lacking in the communication department causing great confusion/frustration. In the past when you worked for a non profit you expected lower wages but the benefits made up for it; this is no longer the case at the Red Cross.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The job market is turning around (albeit slowly) and at some point you are going to need to start treating your employees better. Improve communication.

    I worked at American Red Cross full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working with donors, decent starting pay, most workers are very caring

    Cons

    Excessive travel, irregular hours and sleep

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to deal with issues when it's brought to their attention rather than bury their head in the sand and ignore the problems.
