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

    Pros

    AHA has taken an active initiative during these hard times as we are experiencing a global pandemic. Our senior leadership provided us with working from home initiatives from the very beginning, however is continuously being proactive in providing us with helpful tips and resources for staff and their families during these times. The organization is also working together and has created specific ERGs for staff during these times to help one another and be resourceful and supportive towards one another.

    Cons

    It's been hard to work from home continuously in these times of crisis, however, great resources have been provided to the staff where working from home isn't always difficult.

    Pros

    Every day I wake up knowing that I am making a difference by working towards a world of longer, healthier lives for all Americans. The American Heart Association offers a great balance between your work life and your personal life. They are extremely supportive and understanding. The culture is fun and exciting; however, the work is hard because it is meaningful. They truly make you feel a part of a family- no matter what department you join.
