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

    Pros

    Great mission, great co-workers, holidays and PTO

    Cons

    Management, absolutely no work-life balance, salary, lack of appropriate training and time to acclimate

    Advice to Management

    For the first 2 months or so, I literally thought it was too good to be true, but then things started to change. The job had a 90 degree learning curve, yet within a couple of months I was expected to be able to do all of it (and there was WAY too much) perfectly and without assistance. When I expressed my concerns, I was told I was the problem and that the workload would only increase. Management gave mixed and unclear guidance regarding the tasks/assignments, and I could apparently never do anything right because of this. If I asked for clarification, I was met with irritation and told I should just know, yet when I made assumptions I would get disciplined and asked why I didn't seek clarification. I started going in early and staying late, as well as working weekends and holidays (and even my PTO birthday) to try and get everything done, but it was never enough. I literally stopped eating and sleeping in my attempts to please them in both quantity and quality, and it still wasn't enough. It reached a point where I had become incredibly depressed, anxious and unhappy all the time, and had lost over 10 pounds due to not eating, and I just had to get out. Honestly, I felt like 2 people could've been doing my job full-time and they would both be stressed out and overwhelmed. Please PLEASE, if you're thinking about applying or accepting a job offer from the AHA, please don't make your decision lightly, and read these reviews carefully before making up your mind.
