I worked at American Heart Association full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Your coworkers are smart and helpful.

Cons

No upward mobility, workload overwhelming, and no strategic plan. Too many long term managers not doing anything but collecting a paycheck.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees and not making decisions based on management only. Field staff is important.

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

    Pros

    This is an incredible brand, with great events and passionate volunteers. Most of the employees really care about what they do. The organization gives you the chance to learn and develop different skills.

    Cons

    This organization suffers from a command and control management style. Some senior executives have been grandfathered in and promotion at the top seems to be based on seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Become more flat and transparent. Incorporate more practitioners of holistic health and join WorldBlu to become a democratic workplace.
