    I worked at American Lung Association (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The mission! Loved working there because you knew you were making a difference for lung patients. This is an incredibly underserved group, loved the power building behind LUNG FORCE as I was leaving.

    Cons

    Operated for 4 years as a one-person office. Love to have conference calls for the sake of having calls. Accounting was sketchy at best, had an annual struggle around audit/review time, even with proper documentation. Huge HR issues in the Southeast, especially regarding maternity leave and proper reporting procedures. Marketing / Advertising budget of $0. Promised a raise, based on performance goals, for three years...creative accounting.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate those that work hardest for you. Take a refresher class about proper Human Resources policies and procedures.

    Pros

    You are working for a good cause

    Cons

    Since the organization is so large and has many offices throughout the region, effective communication from superiors was sometimes lacking.

    I have been working at American Lung Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well run organization, good steward of donors' dollars, humane in their expectation of employees. You are expected to work hard but still have a life, and that is all-too-rare in the nonprofit world.

    Cons

    Developing some major new initiatives without enough staffing means it can take a while to get the information needed.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding new National staff to marketing and communications, so the field can receive materials in a timely manner.

    Pros

    Good people fighting for a good cause

    Cons

    Organization does not value it's staff and volunteers as well as it should. Pay for staff is well below the standard across the board. New CEO makes bad decisions about how the org should operate, losing key staff along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Value those who do the work and pay them accordingly.

    Pros

    Great programs, fantastic mission, lots of job autonomy and flexibility. This non-profit has gone through a lot of changes in the past few years.

    Cons

    Some of the associates and gossip. Middle management occasionally let personal issues get in the way of non-biased assessment of work.
