Most unorganized company I have ever worked for. Also, the lack of communication is unbelievable.

I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The purpose of the job

Cons

Most basic information needed to do the job is NEVER communicated. Constantly making policies and changing/dropping them almost on a weekly basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foresight and lack of planning is unbelievable. Everything is reactive (and often to inaccurate information) rather than proactive. No one ever knows what is going on. It really makes me sad to see an organization like the Red Cross is managed so poorly.
