Former Employee - Administrative Associate
Former Employee - Administrative Associate
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at American Heart Association full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible schedule, excellent benefits, quick accrual of PTO, paid week off around Christmas time, rewarding mission, employee recognition, fun office events.

Cons

There are limited opportunities for advancement. Administrative staff is often talked down to and not seen as an integral part of the team. There is a lot of gossip within the organization and many people's private employment issues are leaked. Admin pay is far lower than pay of positions just one level up.

Advice to Management

Treat admin staff more as equals, Create better trajectories for advancement so as to not lose good employees.
