Great Mission - but due to the financial stress, there's no investment on human capital.

I have been working at American Red Cross

Pros

Great flexibility, allow teleworking, open communication between staff and upper management, and most employees are committed to the mission of the organization.

Cons

No career development. No promotion based on merit. Sometimes too much politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. Not only VPs but people who are in contact with donors and the chapters.

    I have been working at American Red Cross

    Pros

    It was close to home. I loved my employees. Benefits and vacations were great if you were allowed to use it without guilt.

    Cons

    Managment showed lack of caring for employees. Middle managment was treated badly and held responsable for things outside our our control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO Needs to really pay better attention to what is really happening out in the field. Not everything is roses and sunshine.
