Pros

The Alzheimer's Association does really great work in the community and everyone employed at the Regional Offices really seem to have incredible knowledge and dedication.

Cons

The office is grey and white and small. Dealing with Alzheimer's disease is fairly depressing work and the fact that it is so highly frowned upon to be able to have any sort of cheer in the office or laugh with your co-workers for a few moments to blow off much-needed steam is really unfortunate and it makes this a pretty dismal palce to have to go each day.

Advice to Management

Add some color. Get some more space so employees aren't surrounded by boxes. Lighten up a bit.

    Pros

    if you want to get your feet wet in the world of development this is a great place to learn the trade. You will get more than enough chances to pitch to anyone who has given in the past; we have a great data base.

    Cons

    If you really truly want to help out famlies you will quickly learn this is not the place for you. It seems the number one goal is to raise money and if somewhere along the way we give some good advise it was pure luck.

    Advice to Management

    this is not the heart assocation folks; when did we stop caring about those who couldn't afford to donate?
