    Pros

    Met some good people - good location

    Senior management SO cliquey. Regardless of talent people whose face fits are promoted especially in fundraising. Waste income on out of control expenses. Good people have left because of mismanagement

    Advice to Management

    Take complaints seriously.

    I worked at Alzheimer's Society full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Worthwhile cause and some good people in it.

    Cons

    Bullying from higher management. I worked closely with some of them and saw emails about me to other .embers of staff. Had to hand in my notice because of the bullying. Never raised it formally because I just wanted to get out of there. I worked for a director so I know the behind the scenes 'work'

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, make it less corporate. I've worked in a number of charities and AS is by far one of the worst. The personalisation is taken out of the charity now
