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

Pros

- lots of 'corporate' support from regional and national HQ
- great organization with a notable mission and reputation

Cons

- very aggressive fundraising goals, difficult to achieve
- lots of 'after hours' work
- no separate 'sick' time (aka need to use 'vacation' time when sick)

Advice to Management

Fundraising goals are handed down from management with (seemingly) little intelligence from those in the field. Unrealistic goals can diminish motivation of employees that already work tirelessly for the mission.

    Pros

    Good mission and creative fundraising events. Good benefits and large company .

    Cons

    I have no respect for this organization regarding the work environment. There is no room for creativity and management has too much control with no checks and balances.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like you would want to be treated. Supervisors have too much control and no one watching their performances.

    Great mission to communicate to market

    Work life balance is ridiculous to maintain

    Listen to your employees to prevent continued revolving door.
