    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Great coworkers
    Great stepping stone but get out after 2-3 years

    Cons

    Not enough hours in the day to complete what is expected. If you are a workaholic and dont mind sacraficing everything, you could fit in. Management of this market is horrible. Militant micromanagers with unrealistic views of the business market. High stress atmosphere. Senior management is verbally abusive.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the trenches and come back to reality.
    Give the old school militant managers their walking papers- you would think losing endless staff members might be a clue.

    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.
