I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

You are helping save lives. There are many departments that allow work from home. There are very talented people working there, many of whom have been there for a long time. Depending on the role, it could be very satisfying. The interview process consists of very long interviews, so be prepared.

Cons

The hours! The workload was never ending and frankly unreasonable. There was no bonuses during my last 2 years due to the economy, and you are reviewed constantly (bi-annually, plus peer reviews, 360 reviews). The workload was due to never ending, understaffed projects.

    I worked at American Heart Association full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hours of 37.5 and getting paid for 40, if you can manage to work less than 50 a week and not be criticized constantly. The office does close for 2 weeks in the winter though you are expected to work. This is across all departments so I guess it's not really a pro per say.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. No one cares about you as a person and you are simply a number. I have seen them fire hard working management who have been here 10 plus years simply because they didn't play in the sandbox and treat their employees like total dog meat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take value in your employees and volunteers before someone that matters gets tired of it.

    I have been working at American Heart Association full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits and a lot of paid time off. The mission is powerful and you're able to feel good about your work.

    Cons

    Administrative associates in the Midwest affliates are thought of as second class citizens. It is possible for very few associates to be promoted. Even then, you're still treated as an administrative associate.
