    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A wonderful humanitarian organization that helps many people during difficult times

    Cons

    You are continually expected to improve performance, while all tools to do so are taken away from you. Management does not care about staff, only about improving their own position at any cost. You are asked to do more and more, with no increase in compensation. In fact, most people who have been with the organization for a few years have seen a continual pay decrease. All problems are blamed on those people who have no power to fix them. Management takes zero accountabilty for poor decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at the root cause of your problems. There are excellent people leaving at an alarming rate. When they leave, you lose the relationships and the connection with the people necessary to make the company a success. The perception is, you would rather not deal with the issues, and just replace the veteran employees with new hires who have no idea how dysfunctional the organization really is. I wish I had a dollar for every time I was told "you're lucky you have a job". What a great way to treat employees!!
