    Pros

    excellent benefits and pay rate

    Cons

    basically keep your mouth shut and never ask questions,
    little communication about job performance in the beginning
    hours are really ridiculous
    left my house at 3am and didn't get home till 7pm
    training was long and boring, treat you like little kids

    Pros

    Some excellent people, great mission, and positive change is on the horizon.

    Cons

    lessening job security, low wages can't retain good people, worsening and complex benefits, slow to respond to change

    Advice to Management

    It is exciting to know that we will soon be out from under the consent decree. With the money the organization is and will be saving in fines, you should reinvest it into the compensation of your employees and being more aggressive and strategic in growing the business. Let's get employees and America excited about the Red Cross again!
