Current Employee - Disaster

I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The mission. The culture and values of the organization are noble. When you understand the true nature of the mission and the organization you understand why people volunteer and why paid staff are so dedicated.

Cons

Job insecurity. Change is constant and employees must be flexible and adaptable to new systems. If you are looking to make a career with them be ready to have your heart broken and dreams dashed over and over again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees with the same respect and care we treat our clients.

    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great mission, great co-workers, great volunteers. Awesome for community involvement, and a lot of satisfaction in helping others.

    Cons

    Excessive hours, poor compensation, disorganized and unfocused senior management (chapter and division).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategize and plan on a chapter level. Know what your employees are doing, and how committed they are. Provide adequate resources so that your employees can achieve goals. If the resources don't exist, fund raise for them.
