    I have been working at American Heart Association (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small class sizes allow for the ability to give individual attention. Over the years that I have had instruction from an American Heart Association Instructor for my certifications and re-certifications I have always found that the instructor was very knowledgeable, approachable, kind, generous of their time, and through in their instructions.

    Cons

    Sometimes I think the certification should only last 6 months to a year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work hiring amazing instructors that continuously assist other in saving lives!!

    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.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, goal focused, lots of tools and resources for success, fosters growth opportunity within the organization, great benefits, working for a meaningful cause, wonderful colleagues.

    Cons

    Very structured standardized performance objectives to work within, sometimes goals are too aggressive/unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    More involvement from Development staff in goal setting, more regular feedback from field staff to gain better understanding and buy in, adjust according to each individual market and community trends.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time

    Pros

    This company really goes above and beyond for their employees. Work/Life balance is amazing! Benefits are amazing! Compensation is phenomenal! The all around working environment at the National Center is so warm and energetic. I absolutely love it! I've worked for many different companies that pay well but had horrible hours, or benefits. But AHA clearly has their employees best interest at heart. I've never had a job that had the best of everything until now! I am so happy to call AHA-NC home!

    Cons

    There are none! AHA Rocks!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing it works!


  7. "An Innovative Non Profit"

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Coming to AHA I soon realized this is a non-profit that runs its business like a for profit and this is a pro. The organization truly seeks out innovation and is constantly evolving to keep up with the changing environment. One examples is the organization's investment in a virtual work environment no matter the staff level. This is a huge perk allowing staff to work where they live and they achieve a healthy balance of office based staff and home based staff.

    Cons

    AHA offers competitive benefits but with a predominantly female work force the maternity leave benefit is lacking. Staff can take short term disability but in short there is no paid maternity or paternity leave offered as is available in many corporate structures.

    Pros

    Feeling connected to the mission and knowing your work makes a difference, and an understanding team, that allows for flexibility in work hours. Additionally being metrics driven and goal focused its easy to track your contribution to the programs you work on. Encouragement to find roles that fit your strengths and talents.

    Cons

    Workload, which makes it difficult to have a work-life balance; and the resulting pay.

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan to develop upcoming talent, and provide them the opportunity to do a good job, by providing adequate resources.
