I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than a year)

Pros

the mission and the difference the research makes. the volunteers, many dedicated folks who come back year after year and go over and beyond. AHU learning online system available to all employess

Cons

unqualified management. micromanage and seem like they have enough to bring in accounts vs checking people's calendars.

Advice to Management

ask employees what they can do better, versus micromanaging calendars for salary employee's who are in and out of field on a daily basis. it's ok to be real and admit you are way in over your head.

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with some terrific volunteers. Most full time employees have their hearts in the right place.

    Cons

    Management by consensus is not management. Upper-level and mid-level management have inflated titles and are overpaid for the value they provide. Management provides little to no leadership. The organization needs to realize there is a difference between a skill set and a warm body - filling a need because you have a warm body but not the correct skill set is a recipe for disaster and results in too many "home grown" solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to manage by consensus, earn your pay, and make a decision. Don't be afraid to make the wrong decision; too many times the lack of a decision in a timely manner resulted in more damage than making a wrong decision.

    Pros

    Salaries are great for a nonprofit

    Cons

    The mission you sell as a fundraiser is not supported by the money you raise.
