    I worked at American Heart Association as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An overall great place to work. Serves as great experience if you have any interest in working for a Non-Profit Organization. And to top it all off, you're working for such a great cause.

    Cons

    A lot of soliciting for donations, which is expected. But it did become a bit monotonous after a few weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Lead the office in a very cohesive manner. But at times, I felt like I was just stuck in an office cold-calling for a donation. So find more ways to get the interns involved with everyone in the office.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Lively, Fun, Very professional organization, great branding, great mission, very health conscious, excellent health insurance with 401K and company retirement plan.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism at local level, not very diverse, fundraising trumps mission frequently, local fundraisers do not embrace multiculturalism well and frequently fail to recommend minorities for higher level volunteer boards unless thousands of dollars are donated

    Advice to Management

    Require Market Directors to switch markets after a set number of years and multiculturalism and diversity must also be sincerely embraced by the Regional VP.
