Pros

Services really go to the disadvantaged. Non-profit organization. Blood products help patients in need, Emergency services really help victims and this is very noble.

Cons

LOW PAY, No empowerment between line staff and management. Pay should reflect skill of position. Red Cross promotions are hard to come by and they dont reward top talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees. They work the front line. Management needs to realign priorities and focus on employee development. Good people want to work at the American Red Cross, but retention is very low because of people need good pay to live

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO
