I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Being able to work for a mission that impacts many people versus making a dollar to make someone richer. Excellent benefits. For being a non profit, we have great technology resources. Good work life balance with flexibility in schedule.

Cons

The AHA can be at times an act first think later organization. There is much reporting done and the process in collecting the information can feel at times like micro management.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Mission : To Save Lives
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Definitely no work life balance. Very Poor Leadership and Management. Litlle or no career advancement. Upper Management and Middle Management on a whole is very incompetent and lacks basic skills for the jobs they hold. Favoritism and unprofessinal behavior are in abundance. Not a nice place to work. Your track record does not get you promoted it's who you know in the organization. Lots of backstabbing and bullying.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire competent and professional Managers.

    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.
