    I worked at American Red Cross full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong camaraderie; sense of positive and meaningful work; generous PTO and other benefits; lots of skills building opportunities; opportunities for domestic travel as well as a network of chapters across the country in which to explore a variety of career options

    Cons

    The pay is modest but on the high mid-range for nonprofits; a bit cumbersome and bureaucratized; very risk averse and at times a resistance to trying no things.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more innovation.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    If you aspire to be over-worked and under-appreciated, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor management at most levels, incompetent head bobblers are retained but anyone who challenges the status quo are shown the door. If you want to have a career here, keep your head down and keep nodding "yes"

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice that they will listen to because they know everything.
