    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time

    Pros

    Not being stuck in an office, the volunteers and blood donors are fun to work with. The Red Cross has a great mission and its nice to have a job where you can truly make a difference.

    Cons

    No direction or plan for growth, serious cost cutting leads to poor customer service (blood donors), low employee morale, no upward mobility or career development.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees, volunteers and blood donors with respect. Don't cut cost to make a quick buck but explore long term solutions to ongoing issues.

    I worked at American Red Cross full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great mission, helps people, see people face to face that you help, could really be a great place to work

    Cons

    Way too much management and very political.

    Advice to Management

    First decrease the layers - way too many. Also be careful who you hire and promote - you are hurting yourselves at the moment.
