    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company truly goes out of its way to help others. Its employees are also very dedicated. They not only work for the Red Cross but they also volunteer in their spare time. The folks who work here are a dedicated bunch who go out of their way working all sorts of hours to accomplish whatever needs to be done to get their job done and to help others.

    Cons

    The company does not forecast its spending for operational expenses very well. Because of this every six months they have constant staff layoffs. No one is immune from being laid off with the exception of senior management.They get rid of alot of very useful hardworking staff but then laden themselves with executive directors and all sorts of vice presidents and presidents.

    Advice to Management

    Please look at flat-lining your management heirarchy. There is no need to have so many senior directors, executive directors, assistant vice presidents, vice presidents, senior and exective vice presidents. Keep the worker bees that continue to produce and reduce management staff. In the end it will create a better work environment and we will have more productivity with a reduction in payroll allowing us to keep more staff and get more work done.
