    Pros

    The best reason to work at American Heart Association is because all of the tasks you are assigned will be extremely easy. The skill-set level you need to do any job there, you learn before high school during candy fundraisers.

    Cons

    The downsides are endless at American Heart Association. Pay is not nearly enough to live happily, even at advanced positions. The tasks are so easy you get bored within the first couple hours. The employees are all, or 99% women who don't practice what the association preaches.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest management actually challenges the employees to practice what they are preaching, as in eating healthy and exercising, so that when they go out fundraising they don't look like hypocrites.
