AWFUL
Employee (Current Employee), NYC AreaJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: generous with pto and other wellness perks
Cons: they work you to the bone at a low salary, and do not allow you to have time to pursue the wellness benefits.
There is NO work life balance in this organization unless you are an hourly employee. The compensation is well below what even other non-profit organizations are paying. They expect you to work "until the job is done," although the job is NEVER done, especially when they have employees essentially working two full time positions. High turnover, even – more... at management levels. Managers are sometimes borderline psychotic. – less

Pros: 10-14 days paid holiday time from christmas to new year's.
Cons: negative attitudes.
Too many managers and not enough work for the clerical staff. Went through two layoffs in 18 months, and not one manager was released. They do great work, but spend too much donor money on play time.

Training Network Specialist, ECC Programs (Former Employee), Richardson, TXSeptember 24, 2013
Pros: meaningful work
Cons: not much room for advancement
Great place to work and the work can be fullfilling at times knowing you are helping to save lives. The leadership roles are constantly changing which can be annoying at times as the company is constantly changing directions and is behind when it comes to technology

Matching Gift Specialist (Former Employee), Austin, TXSeptember 20, 2013
Pros: flexiable work schedule, family was always first.
Cons: lack of professional managment and repsect amoung team members.
A typical work day consisted of large amounts of data entry and any projects that our manager would add in. The managment was located off site which was an adjustment for me in the beginning. I enjoyed my job with the AHA simply because I was a part of something really big that helped to save lives.
