No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Services really go to the disadvantaged. Non-profit organization. Blood products help patients in need, Emergency services really help victims and this is very noble.

Cons

LOW PAY, No empowerment between line staff and management. Pay should reflect skill of position. Red Cross promotions are hard to come by and they dont reward top talent.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees. They work the front line. Management needs to realign priorities and focus on employee development. Good people want to work at the American Red Cross, but retention is very low because of people need good pay to live

    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.
