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

Pros

Great opportunity to help others and alleviate the suffering of one's fellow man...

Cons

Disorganized and extremely top heavy. It was impossible to get Departments to talk and coordinate. I really don't feel that they care about their people like they should.

Advice to Management

Listen more to the troops. Get out of the office on a regular basis and watch service delivery.
