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

Pros

The nature of the work is rewarding

Cons

The concept of "days off" does not apply here. Pay is low compared to working in the corporate world.

Advice to Management

If you want to retain talent increase the pay. We know how much the Directors get paid and there is too much disparity in salary.

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

    Pros

    Good salary, good work environment, friendly and compassionate coworkers. Great benefits from the start. Overall a good place to work

    Cons

    Too much upper management that sometimes does not know your job function which creates problems. Salaries rely on public donations so when the economy is bad there is no cost of living increase and benefits can be withdrawn.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten the top heavy structure and get to know your employees and what they are doing and good at.
