    I worked at American Red Cross part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment for young interns. The intern group was fantastic. Got along with the staff in the personal sense, but found the office itself unorganized. I was the pr intern and felt important.

    Cons

    Hard to grow and develop skills to use in other environments. I wish I had known the issues my superiors had with the company before I decided to work with them. Superiors were hypocrites, expected me to be their slave and complete any sort of task they came up with. Found out I was not an official intern when I tried to fix the internet on a day the interns and I were the only ones in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Better delegation and communication skills to all territory leaders. They seem lost, un-enthused and are looking for new jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Lose half of the VP positions. They are high ticket / very low produce. Listen to your middle managers, they are the best link you have to what is really going on in your company. Volunteers are wonderful but most are not nearly as dedicated as your paid staff. Appreciate your paid staff. The opt to work at a low pay, high demand, few perk job Every Day.
