I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The American Red Cross has a wonderful mission and their branding is known around the world. PTO policy is the only positive employee benefit.

Cons

While recognized as a humanitarian organization, they treat their employees horribly. This organization strips you of your work ethic and degrades your skills. Very wasteful of the resources they have and not open to very simple changes to improve. A very negative and dysfunctional environment to work in. A revolving door and most of those going out are key talent that management should strive to retain. Poor health benefits; horrible management who are unable to effectively lead - a total disappointment as an employer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A good manager always hires the best and brightest. The management at ARC isn't the brightest at the top so they continually hire dumb and dumber all the way down the management chain. Appreciate the employees who are busy doing the work and carrying out the mission for they are your number one asset.

    I worked at American Red Cross as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    When there is a disaster, Red Cross shines. They do what they need to do in order to get the job done.

    Cons

    New financial blows means workers are having to take on more responsibilities than ever as they absorb other positions. It can make an unorganized environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better organization from the top downard.
