I have been working at American Red Cross as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Good people, laid back environment, good communication, plenty of things to be involved in or not should you choose to be.

Cons

Not everything works out as planned with quite a few last minute changes or modifications that are only found out about at the last minute after the wheels are rolling hard and fast, but then again how shocking is that in a Disaster Response organization.

Advice to Management

Carefully consider and test all upgrades to your systems and brand and then make them your own.

    I worked at American Red Cross part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is ok for living expenses while going to college and unlike most employers offer benefits like health insurance even to part time workers (after the probationary period).

    Cons

    They like to have a reason to let you go after the probationary period. Training/paperwork/red tape can be cumbersome and boring.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on training vs long reading assignments. It will be much more efficient.
