    I worked at American Red Cross full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Red Cross principles are humanitarian...I think the "working" employees and volunteers have the good hearts to become involved with the Red Cross and to help needed people.

    Cons

    Seems like Red Cross turned into a big "corporation". Managers no longer listen to employees nor volunteers. They do not treat them with respect nor do they even act like they care whether you are there or not. Only seem to care about making money. Things changed tremendously in the 7 years I worked there. Started out as the best job EVER...but things changed drastically so I had to leave. I still stay so upset over the Red Cross as I really believed in them, but now know a lot of the hidden issues that the public is not aware of...I hope and pray that someday upper management will wake up and make changes so that the Red Cross goes back to their original good hearted humanitarian principles.

    Advice to Management

    Open up your eyes and see what is happening inside the Red Cross...
