I worked at American Diabetes Association full-time (Less than a year)
Nice work environment, Very nice people
Remote management has no idea how to run events. Runs/Walk are fine anything else was not done well. Signature Event at FedEx was a disaster. ALOT of turnover. Many people up and quit.
Advice to Management
Use the skill and knowledge of the people you hire. Don't try to make them conform to everything. The process was broken, that was why you made the effort to fix it. let it be fixed
I applied online. I interviewed at American Diabetes Association.
Long, nothing face to face. Everything was set up through the recruiter.
Interviewer missed the second interview. Hired me 30 mins after my second interview. I did not meet my hiring manager until 3 months in. I quit shortly after. She clearly had no leadership ability or knowledge of what we were trying to pull off.
