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

    Pros

    Working with heart and stroke survivors, seeing the results of our funded research, we work many hours but our work is for a good purpose and we have family/work life balance, excellent benefits including an employee wellness program. Management is approachable and easy to talk to. Our volunteers are incredible! We are a family at the AHA and care about each other, our donors and our volunteers very much.

    Cons

    Fundraising staff turnover in some markets.

    Advice to Management

    Allow staff to creatively think of ways to fundraise that are outside the norm.

    Pros

    Important mission - it is extremely rewarding to know that lives are being saved and improved because of the work you do every day. The Association culture reflects diversity and inclusion. Senior management cares about and listens to employees. Focus on teamwork and collaboration. Excellent benefits, flexibility and work-life balance. Employee recognition.

    Cons

    Career advancement takes time (many people stay long-term, especially on the mission side of the organization). Salary could be more competitive (but overall compensation package makes up for it with generous benefits, flexibility and work-life balance).

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for career growth & advancement.
