    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.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Organization closes during week of Christmas, good benefits.

    Cons

    Employees don't trust leadership and managers and from what I saw, it was for good reason. The organization has very few programs that it manages -- donations are primarily for education and their impact is impossible to measure. Donors would be better off supporting the hospitals in their communities. They can't point to lives they are directly impacting and their model is outdated. Organization does not understand fundraising and therefore fundraising staff "disappear" constantly.
