I have been working at American Heart Association full-time

Pros

The mission. The volunteers who are truly passionate. Autonomy in the day to day of the job.

Cons

Large amounts of micromanaging. Only thing that matters to management is dollars and cents. The neediness and loss of public perception in relation to unreachable goals. Treat volunteers as employees and expecting too much from them.

Advice to Management

Live by the mission and recognize the value in other functions than money.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are great; rewards and advancement are there for people that know how to acccomplish goals and work well with others; wonderful, dedicated staff and volunteers; a compelling mission; leaders that care about the staff and the mission; flexibility for staff in hours and location if the person performs well

    Cons

    There are some former staff members that are writing on this site. Some people think that working for a nonprofit means relatively easy work. That is not true. When people find that a job is not for them, they should exit, but not bash the company. That is not good for them or for others. No one workplace fits all types of people, and unfortunately, there will sometimes be managers we don;t work well with. There are many happy people here that love working for the AHA. The AHA is in the top echelon of Non-Profits to Work For according to Non-Profit Times and as judged by current employees every year. Employee Engagement survey results are excellent. Check these out for a more complete perspective.
