A very reputable non-profit organiztion.
Associate Manager, Operations (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 10, 2015
I was one of two staff who envisioned and launched the American Heart Association's (AHA) Food Certification Program (the red heart with the white check-mark in it that you see on food products in the grocery store). I managed all aspects of the operations of this program, including nutritionally screening every food product to ensure it met the criteria for carrying the heart-check mark on its packaging and all contracts between the participating food companies and AHA

Internship.
Internship (Former Employee), Little Rock, ARDecember 17, 2014
This was the best experience. I got to help launch a program for this organization. This intership really made me grow and see how much of a difference the right program can make in people's lives. I loved getting to know the people that work there. All the managers really seemed to have a good working relationship with all of their employees. The hardest part was learning how reach out to the public about this program. Once we started having people particiapte in the program it was easier to get more and more people interested. It was a wonderful experience.

Good but aggressive company to work for
Director (Former Employee), MidwestOctober 29, 2014
Pros: great mission, committed volunteers, good benefits
Cons: uneven management, aggressive culture
The AHA is a good company to work for. As nonprofits go, it offers a comprehensive benefits and rewards package, as well as pays fairly competitively against other large, national NPOs. They have an aggressive fundraising culture, which isn't for everyone. Also, I think a person's success will largely depend on their manager, which is too bad because there are a VARIETY of management styles in play, and not all of them are good. Be prepared to hustle to meet your goals and work hard. If you are an assertive, type A personality, then the AHA may be a good fit for you. And there are lots of internal advancement opportunities.

Unorganized and unprofessional! They chase the money not the mission
Director, Corporate Events (Former Employee), Amherst, NYSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: salaries and benefits are higher than average
Cons: poor sr. management and ed people skills, micromanage to the point of distruction
This organization has burned major bridges in the community by chasing the money and not living the mission. Sr. Managers (ED, VP's) bully staff, and micromanage the processes to the point that nothing can be accomplished with out their involvement or permission.
My advise to you is don't do it! Ignore the pay and benefits and stay where you are, you will be better off for it.

Insanity at AHA
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 24, 2014
This organization is nothing more than a place to raise money and torture employees. No one below "Sr. Management" is treated with any respect. Some managers are known to spend hours giving their work to lower individuals on the totem pole and then taking all the credit for work that is done.
