I worked at American Red Cross full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Non-Profit Environment provides a sense of worth to achievements.
The identity and branding of the company is well known throughout the world
The services provided were top-notch.

Cons

Communications were lacking, both in rolling out new information and in response to feedback.
Technological advances were poorly structured and faulty on roll-out.

Advice to Management

Get to understand the actual functions and operations of the company prior to trying to implement the newest thing for the industry. Otherwise you are trying to fit a square peg in a round hole.

    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This organization is rewarding and has a favorable working environment. Health and dental coverage is great and can be effective first day on the job if elected. After 3 months of employment, eligible for 401K savings, matched at 4%.

    Cons

    As a former Accounting/Office Manager with 30+ years work experience and 2 years of college, for me, the salary is below average for my experience. After being unemployed for almost a year, I accepted my first hourly paid position at a reduction in salary of $10,000 annually.

    Advice to Management

    Due to budgetary restraints at the regional level, non-exempt hourly salaries are below the local and national average and could use a 10% pay increase.
