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

    Pros

    *work from home
    *great pay
    *Strong Mission
    *large organization with lots of resources and leading edge technology
    *great training

    Cons

    *upper management refuses to accept the changing environment of fundraising and adapt accordingly - always blames the staff
    *very long hours and unrealistic expectations for staff
    *no work/life balance at all
    *high stress-high pressure
    *your job is at risk if you don't meet aggressive goals, so there's high turnover

    Advice to Management

    you have some of the best resources and technology available today in the non-profit arena! You need to acknowledge that wrong decisions are being made with some programs and stop being afraid of changing and adapting, even if it means moving staff around. Believe me, they will understand! You are losing great people because you refuse to accept that you are going in the wrong direction!
