I loved working at the association.
Technical assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 7, 2017
Working at the association was beautiful. The people who work there are passionate about what they do, they care about the people with Alzheimer's as well as their caregivers, they compensate nicely and have good benefits.

Does not walk their talk
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 29, 2017
The Alz Assoc has been fundraising for a "cure" for more than four decades. After hundreds of millions of dollars (more than a billion?) in research for better treatment or a cure, they have nothing to show for it.

The leadership is muddled and the internal machinations (nationally) are cut throat and brutal.
Pros
None to speak of
Cons
Bad leadership from the top down

The Alzheimer's Association is one of the best places to be if you want to work one on one with dementia patients and be a park of the community. The staff is amazing!

New Manager is much better!
Interim Regional Coordinator (Former Employee) –  MIAugust 8, 2017
There is a different manager there than when I worked there. The new one is great. The old one was put on Administrative Leave while an investigation was conducted...so I cannot give much of an accurate review here.

Finance Development Assistant (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 24, 2017
This is an organization where all the employees are very passionate about the work they do. It is a collaborative effort by all to achieve a common goal. They do outstanding walks and have $1M dollar walks two years in a row.
Pros
Everyone pitches in for all events.
Cons
Early days and long nights during walk season.

Alzheimer's Association
Technical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 13, 2017
The team at the association is extremely supportive, and the work that is being done felt very meaningful. While the work being done sometimes varied from extremely challenging to not stimulating at all, it seemed like every day you are given the opportunity to assist an individual or a family who is in need of assistance. Working with such a population of caregivers, family's of persons with dementia, and dementia patients themselves, could certainly become emotionally exhausting but the supportive team around alleviates this stress to the best of their ability. The ability to sit for long periods of time is essential.
Pros
meaningful work, supportive team, great company
Cons
sit for long durations, emotionally tiring

Don't work in the contact center. Poor management and lack of communication. You will be overworked and accommodation will not be made. I like that calls but that is all.

Bad management at the Chicago National office, No opportunities for advancement
Care Consultant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 25, 2017
I answer calls on a helpline speaking with Caregivers and people who have Dementia. I like helping other's but the whole morale of the job have went down. When there are openings or new opportunities the selection process is not done fairly by management. Employees who have been with the organization long seem to not be treated fairly.
Pros
Love helping the people who call the helpline
Cons
Manager's are not on the same page, Micro Management is happening, No advancement opportunities
