    I have been working at American Red Cross

    Pros

    The mission of the Red Cross is the driving force of the ataff, volunteers and Upper Management. You will feel good at the end of the day for your contributions to it's cause.

    Cons

    The mission is so important that the development of staff is secondary. There is little opportunity for orofessional development and almost no incentive for doing your job well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage the staff in strategic goal setting and means to achieve said goals. The organization feels more like a corporation than a non-profit, as a result of recent re-organizational changes. The people who do the work come with extensive knowledge and should be valued more than they are currently.
