Pros

The ability to care and help for people in need due to natural disasters. Flexability was very helpful with going to school. Support from everyone as it was a family

Cons

The reorganization made it diffult as more responsibility was added to the daily job.

    I worked at American Red Cross as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generally pleasant experience with the folks at our chapter
    They are good at mobilizing community volunteers, which is always helpful in a nonprofit

    Cons

    Bureaucracy that dictates vast changes that often make no sense at the ground level
    Top-down corporate management style with little consultation with boots on the ground
    Promotion of people who play well with upper management rather than those who are most efficient at their jobs

    Advice to Management

    Consult and listen to local leadership more. Despite your many years of experience as a corporate executive, these chapter leaders know more than you do about their community's demographics and the day-to-day realities in the field.

    I worked at American Red Cross as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interning at the Red Cross was a wonderful experience because of how hands I got to be! I got to run my own fundriaser and set up social media campaigns for them. I learned a lot from working directly with the staff and volunteers.

    Cons

    When working at a small, understaffed and underfunded nonprofit there are always cons. I think the organization could definitely utilize their resources more efficiently. There's also a ton of room for growth.
