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

Pros

Mission of saving lives. Hard working and dedicated staff.

Cons

Leadership is lacking ability to lead the company. Relies on hiding behind charts and graphs. Great disconnect between line staff and senior managers.

Advice to Management

Wake up to the reality that continuing to sacrifice long term dedicated employees to cut costs because of your poor long term planning is killing the organization. You can only rely on the brand image for so long.
