Pros

Working for the Alzheimer's Association is great because not only are you furthering your career but you are helping people struggling with Alzheimer's disease.

The benefits are okay and the pay is manageable, but not as much as I was making in a corporate position previously.

    I worked at Alzheimer's Association full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great way to network and learn about various community resources that are available. Great benefits for single individuals, families/couples not so great benefits.

    Cons

    No real growth opportunities. Pay for an MSW was under $30k. Rewarding to work with caregivers and provide information to the community. Micromanagement and employee favoritism evident. Expect to work 40+ hours a week, time-off policies aren't great. Wouldn't reconsider going back to organization for a career. Expect to you stay in office for majority of the time, yet they also expect you to provide numerous programs in the community...conflict.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect your programs department to be able to provide services if you keep the staff in the office. Favoritism towards employees. Board members should be much more involved in organization's work. Keep all the staff in the loop on decisions made, the trickle down effect didn't trickle down whatsoever.

    I have been working at Alzheimer's Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great organization with lots of programs to help those dealing with Alzheimer's in the community.

    Cons

    Lack of good/consistent leadership, little room for growth. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get someone that has as strong background in fundraising and development and knows how to be a good manager. If nothing is done, then we will continue to lose good people in the organization and will make it difficult to make an impact.
