    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at American Red Cross full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The volunteers give their heart and soul to helping local families.

    Cons

    They eliminate and change your job with little to no notice. Too much money goes to CEO and upper management versus local assistance. The long term goal is to get rid of as many paid employees and replace them with volunteers.

    I worked at American Red Cross full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Giving back Humanitarian Excellent co-workers Excellent Benefits and work/life

    Cons

    Most positions are not the best for income-it IS a non-profit! Some long-time employees really need to resign or just become volunteers It's hard to advance to other positions

    Advice to Management

    Try to think of new ways to do things. The manager I had in my last position, with the help of entry-level workers, found some HUGE discrepancies in record-keeping and financial costs and it would have been a non-issue if people had been keeping track the way they should have and not passing the buck
