No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Meeting survivors and knowing they were grateful for support, the team was very supportive of peers

Cons

long hours, very sales driven environment, everything was a numbers game, real relationship building and fundraising did not exist, leadership was inefficient and only concerned with their bottom line

Advice to Management

pay attention to your mid-level managers and think more about who you hire in leadership

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great volunteers, worthy mission, good pay for a non profit, great PTO and benefits

    Cons

    They hours are unbelievable, no work life balance, "mean girl" mentality management style, micromanaging atmosphere. There is no growth potential. There is never enough and the company has become greed driven.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for more and more. Appreciate your people more, appreciate your volunteers more, stop booking lake side rooms for management meetings and start putting the money towards the mission. Listen to your staff, many have great ideas and concepts. Stop taking them for granted and see how low your attrition can go! When people reach out and want to do more, stay longer, and work with you, listen to them.
