I have been working at American Red Cross

Pros

Gives you hands on experience in any field you want to go into. Also constantly has positions opening or classes and training to take to further your career. Management is easy to talk to and constantly open to new ideas. Also reviews are given in a fair manner.

Cons

Some people are standoffish outside of your department. Other problem is you are working for a non-profit agency, so the pay isn't the greatest when first starting, but those that have been promoted higher up, get paid fairly well. In certain departments you have to work around everyone's schedule if you want a day off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow more time off and more competitive pay.

    I worked at American Red Cross

    Pros

    Great benefits, stable working environment, great insight into the field, proud to be a part of the org, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Very small raises, will deny raises on technicalities that are not your fault, most people work there for 10 years without a promotion, not as much cross training as I would have liked, very uptight atmosphere sometimes (but you ARE testing blood that could kill someone)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize your talent and care whether they stay or not. I know you are a big org, but you still need to appreciate a good thing when you have it.
