    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the American Heart Association for a decade now and what invigorates me to come to work every day is the fact that what I do ultimately contributes towards helping people live healthier and longer. As an employee of this organization, I am passionate about making an extraordinary impact by creating a brighter future where no one dies of cardiac arrest. Our mission of saving lives is not just a cliché that we say. It is embedded in the core of our hearts and is what drives us in everything we do.

    Cons

    I can't think of any right now. I believe that AHA is very competitive and consistently strives to be one of the top employers both in the profit and non-profit world.

    Advice to Management

    I love the fact that the top executives of the AHA walk the talk of our mission each and every day and demonstrates consistently our core values. I would love to see the same commitment and passion in every member/level of management, holding them accountable to lead by example and reflect the same values.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time

    Pros

    Great mission. Strong benefits package.

    Cons

    Seattle office- Micromanagement. Management is demeaning, not supportive, directive, not open to new ideas, opinions are not welcome and HR is not a support when you are in need. No engagement in mission, only after the funds.

    Advice to Management

    Seattle office- The salary and bonus structure is attractive, but not a good career move if you value your integrity and skills. You will be told to fall in line and to not speak up. Toxic environment with current management in place.
