Pros

Cons

- High turnover in many fundraising positions
- Fundraising is more difficult in a down economy
- Titles are inconsistent between regional offices and the national office (ex. VP in regional office would be a Director at the national office)

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time

    Pros

    Vacation Time - Time off during Christmas Holidays.

    Cons

    HR needs to listen to the employees. Decisions need to be made based on right and wrong and someone's title should have anything to do with making a decision.
    Managers need to be held accountable for their actions.
    Turn over rate is extremely high.
    Stressful and toxic environment due to turnover and management style.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to take a look at the turnover rate and understand that it is not normal to have being coming and going like they have a revolving door. A good environment is free.
