I worked at American Red Cross full-time (more than an year)

Pros

They offer a decent salary with good benefits. The Red Cross has relatively streamlined operations for a large organization. The name and core purpose of the Red Cross are widely known withing the USA, although many may not be aware of the volume of work American Red Cross supports around the globe.

Cons

The focus of the organization is too broad and a bit misdirected. Emergency preparedness and response is and should continue to be their core business, both for both domestic and international situations. The Red Cross often lacks clear exit strategies for long-term emergency relief and response programs, often resulting in unrealistic and unfulfilled expectations of the beneficiaries.

    Pros

    Very supportive, resourceful, good pay

    Cons

    Rely on volunteers, could hire more qualified employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhead is no longer viewed as cons, opposite hiring more qualified employees would make ARC program more efficient. Lack proper evaluation metrics. Implementing early monitoring systems would justify ARC claim to fame of their efficacy (.90 of every donated dollar goes to the programs)
