    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.

    "Toxic environment. Money focused not mission. Stress is intense. No work life balance."

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

    Pros

    Great volunteers who work tirelessly in support of the mission. The highlight for all is the paid week of at Christmas which is the only time there is a true-work life balance only because the AHA is closed!

    Cons

    Focus is only on the money, management bonuses not the mission. Donors are valued only for what they give. Constant staff turnover. Whatever you do is never enough. Many high paid staffers who do little work are acknowledged for their efforts??? AHA may lead the way in how to be heart healthy yet employees are far from good examples; overweight, smokers and serious junk food eaters. Do not work here if you sincerely have a heart, care about others and your own health.
