    Pros

    Helping others; Red cross is a great organization; much of the work that the organization as a whole provides is worthwhile.

    Cons

    There are very few opportunities for volunteers. I offered a very skilled work history, but they had a difficult time coming up with volunteer jobs that could utilize my skills. The type of volunteer jobs they had available were such that anyone could do.

    Advice to Management

    Think about placing skilled volunteers in positions that will keep them interested, challenged, and coming back to volunteer more.


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Great place to work for progressive, "go-getter" personalities."

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere with respect for family and personal lives. A lot of room for creativity in your position once you have established yourself as long as you are a good communicator and a team player. Good insurance and benefits package. Overall you can feel great about coming to work everyday and making a difference in someone else's life.

    Cons

    Some of the employees that have been around for a long time are poisonous to a positive working atmosphere. Compensation is good for non-profit but not on par with for-profit business. Professional development and training opportunities are lacking compared to what you can get at for-profit companies.
