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

Pros

I worked at AHA for a total of 60 days and it was the worst example of true fundraising I've ever seen. I met some great people who truly care about the mission.

Cons

Donors are a number and it makes people feel squicky.I had this "boss" who was ridiculous, talking about her drunken escapades and being overall unprofessional. Then this "boss" was placed on "stress leave" for a month. Now it's another month or two, and although I'm not there anymore, its annoying that the boss is posting all over Facebook about her vacation. Her stress is really a welcome thing for the employees.

Advice to Management

Take note in how quick your development turnover is. Pay attention to what the little people are telling you.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The AHA has such a compelling mission and I'm reminded of the difference we make each day in the stories of our volunteers, donors and coworkers. I'm also reminded of how much more there is to do so that all of us have access to the care, education and information, research and resources needed to take care of our hearts. I'm thankful to have the chance to work alongside colleagues - volunteers and staff - who are absolutely committed, well-intentioned and focused on advancing our mission in the best way possible across the diverse communities we serve. It's far from easy but incredibly rewarding.

    Cons

    I think I get the comments about the fundraising goals being aggressive but, at the same time, we're setting out to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% in just a few short years. Having lost my father to a stroke, I can't help but wonder what unfunded research projects might have given me more time with him. Feeling like there is always so much more that can be done may be a con but also extremely motivating to keep going.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to help others see the difference they make and foster an environment in which they can feel great about it.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Great Benefits, Generous PTO

    Cons

    Vice Presidents are allowed to treat employees as poorly as they wish, if you have a problem with harsh, rude, personal criticism ....don't work here. There is very little (no) opportunity for advancement. Management ALWAYS wants more and more and more.

    Advice to Management

    The employees you manage are your bread and butter... check your language and the volume of your voice. Treat others how you would like to be treated.
