    I have been working at American Lung Association full-time

    Pros

    I really enjoy working here for several reasons, but my top reasons include: 1) my design work has meaning – I am proud to produce materials in our fight for clean air and healthy lungs for all; 2) my colleagues are great people, friendly, and make the work environment fun; 3) I'm one that thrives on being busy and there certainly is always a steady flow of work and productivity in this role; and 4) there's plenty of opportunity to get involved in other areas of the organization via volunteering, which is a nice change of pace from my day to day – plus I feel good about it!

    Cons

    I haven't been here that long, but still figuring out where I will have the opportunity to move up in my career.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility and sense of community enrichment were fantastic although unrealistically implemented.. Gained multitudes of experience due to the weak infrastructure.

    Cons

    Institutional disorganization that at times appears willful in order to misappropriate donations. Lack of integrity within HR /charter employee handbook means nothing to the charter CEO's practice.
