I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The mission. The culture and values of the organization are noble. When you understand the true nature of the mission and the organization you understand why people volunteer and why paid staff are so dedicated.

Cons

Job insecurity. Change is constant and employees must be flexible and adaptable to new systems. If you are looking to make a career with them be ready to have your heart broken and dreams dashed over and over again.

Advice to Management

Treat employees with the same respect and care we treat our clients.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits that start day 1.

    Cons

    Leadership is awful, Collections and their union

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be a real Top 100 company, clean house in DC. Failure to get from under the decree is poor. Only company where you can keep losing money and get a promotion. Gail you need to really be honest and stop the musical chairs with the board of directors and clean house. Fix Collections! they cause the most problems , FDA fines etc. Become better leaders there would not be a need for a union, however poor leadership has created this mess..now clean it up!
