Pros

You get a paycheck every two weeks. Hands only CPR is great, and a needed training. That's about all for AHA.

Cons

Cons:
This is like working in a sorority house. It absolutely is a mean girls club
Management is terrible. They criticize you personally nothing is based on work performance.
There is no recognition for a job well done
There is plenty of critiscm and micro managing
Goals are constantly changing, you'll never win
Senior manager has no clue what's going on, not do they care
The favortism in these offices is out of control

Advice to Management

Treat people with respect. Everyone deserves at least a little respect. Realize you are a manager, not friends with those employees you like and enemies with those you don't.

    Pros

    Helping the public at large. Many chances for advancement. Autonomy is a big plus. The clients and volunteers are enjoyable to work with and planning/executing events is very rewarding.

    Cons

    "Single" directors are treated differently/poorly by the conservative staff. There is a lot of judgement and negative feelings among the primarily female staff.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of the potential for immature female employees to create a "mean girl" society within the workplace which intimidates good employees and makes for a very hostile work environment.
