Pros
Cons
  • You can't blame their culture for having so few paid staff, therefore raising so much more for important research (in 10 reviews)

  • Staff and volunteers are not always respected, I always treated my volunteers with upmost respect, small tokens of thanks goes an awful long way (in 5 reviews)

    I have been working at British Heart Foundation as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment and friendly staff and volunteers

    Cons

    Too much of micro management of stock from day to day on previous years and always want more on fund raising on daily basis which is never enough for senior management always in competion with other stores in other areas

    Advice to Management

    Ok on management of stock and rotation between other stores within the area, relax on the day to day conference calls monthly is sufficient enough, customers can only give what they can we can not force them to give more this goes with all charities

    Pros

    To begin with Igained some excellent experience. Shame it didn't last!

    I worked at British Heart Foundation part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was a volunteer for a little under a year. The staff were friendly, the manager was one of the best I've had the pleasure of working with.

    Cons

    I had no come to mention it was absolutely faultless. So, I'm afraid you'll have to read someone else's cons.
