    I worked at American Diabetes Association part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great purpose in the company. People ready to help a good cause. I would recommend this company.

    I can not say anything bad about the company. I would have liked to have worked for the company more than seasonal.

    I have been working at American Diabetes Association full-time

    Pros

    Passionate, cutting edge, interesting work. At least in the Government Affairs and Advocacy department, frequent promotions internally. Lots of careers leveraged upwards for those leaving the Department. Room for creativity. Pay and benefits good (for a nonprofit). Inspiring network of dedicated volunteers.

    Cons

    Good work-life balance, but we work hard while we're here (don't know if that is a con.) Annoying bureaucratic blocks at times.

    Advice to Management

    While in transition, take time to appreciate what you got!

    Pros

    The new leadership has transformed the work climate at ADA in the past year. After years of chaotic leadership, the new team has made ADA a dynamic and exciting place to work. Many of my colleagues have told me that they find their efforts appreciated for the first time in years.

    Cons

    If you are adverse to working hard, don't come to ADA just to collect a paycheck. Expectations for performance and integrity are high. No more tolerance for slackers.
