I worked at American Red Cross full-time (less than a year)

Pros

The nature of the work is rewarding

Cons

The concept of "days off" does not apply here. Pay is low compared to working in the corporate world.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to retain talent increase the pay. We know how much the Directors get paid and there is too much disparity in salary.

    Pros

    Caring and friendly environment. Rewarding work knowing you are helping others in the process. Ability to move within the organization occurs regularly.

    Cons

    At times can be stressful. Change occurs often which is good except when change is not the right solution. Changing just to change adds unnecessary stress as opposed to change that will move the organization in a positive direction. Reactionary change instead of proactive change and unfortunately, this company is involved with reactionary change more often than proactive.
