Internship (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – December 17, 2018
They were a busy well organized company and the work life balance was great. Everyone there was very nice and polite. They were very professional and we got the work done. This job requires a lot of travel to different sites for training.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Carmel, IN – September 24, 2018
I was assigned to work for the Alzheimer's Organization for 9 weeks. This was to be for 3 days/week (6 hours each day). After the first 2 days, I was highly praised and asked to work 4 days/week. The following week I was praised again and all employees were extremely warm and inviting.
The office was on a "mission" for their annual awareness walks throughout the state. My job was as a customer service rep, where I contacted all team leaders re upcoming events, etc.
Every day my supervisor met with me briefly or left my work for me (a list of the upcoming events). When I started this position, everything I needed was at my desk and the computer was ready for me to start (this had not been the case at previous jobs). So, this was very much appreciated.
As the weeks rolled by, I got to meet other staff and they ALL were absolutely wonderful! If there were a position open in this office, I would love to have it...but, my position was only for 9 weeks...
Good staff and hard-workers but very poor management.
Information Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 2, 2018
I don't typical writer reviews but my 2 years here have been so rocky. When i started I felt I was making a difference and helping people. Then through time they became more and more strict on what we can do and what we can say. Then as I attempted to shift and address the requirements of the job, I was told I wasn't helping the clients.
The mixed messages and poor management, combined with 0 possibility for advancement or developing on the job new skills make me not want to stay here.
Flexible, good staff, nice working space, and nice benefits.
Poor department and direct supervision, no advancement, and no appreciation for hard-work.
Health Educator (Former Employee) – Ohio – December 9, 2018
Management team has been there for 20 years and has no clue about how to manage because they've never worked anywhere else. Lots of favoritism here. Those who are non-management are all 20-somethings who do not know any other culture because they've never worked anywhere else and literally think the toxic passive aggressive management style is the norm. Horrible experience with a program director who has zero clue how to direct people much less programs and leads by gaslighting and toxicity. Human resources manager himself played games on his phone during meetings and made disparaging remarks about coworkers in virtual locations during tele-meetings. They tout diversity and inclusion but this place is anything but. NOT a good place to work.
Family Case Consultant (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 17, 2018
The salary does not match the cost of living. Of course this is not a job that you expect to be paid a six figure income, however, one should not be having issues making ends meet as well when you are being asked to work extended hours, travel in your personal vehicle and not really being compensated for it. Also lack of room for advancement along with being expected to be familiarize with all facets of the disease with poor education training does not help.
Manager (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 11, 2018
Competitive environment. Great benefits, good culture, very demanding with high expectations. minimal on-site training for computer applications and programs utilized within organization. Annual incentives.
Good organization with a very important purpose. Diverse staff including older and younger. Managers are good or bad depending on who you report to.
Freelance (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 11, 2018
Nice office environment. Low key. Located downtown and very accessible from all over the city by public transportation. Diverse staff – all different ages. Contract pay ok. Management can be good or bad depending on the specific manager. Some managers don’t have great people skills. Contract workers treated as what they are – temporary.
Community Program Outreach Director (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – December 19, 2017
Management was horrific. They did not understand business. If you went against what everyone else agreed they said you were not a leader". Long hours.
Great Flex Time, Nice Co-Workers
Slavery mentality, Tried to preach diversity but clueless, hiring people to fill positions one person did, overworked, long hours, nights and weekends, President was clueless and only cared about the development to raise funds and more money for her
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – November 20, 2018
There is an extremely high turnover rate for such a small organization. There is absolutely no room for growth and they will not allow it. They lack diversity although want to appear they are. The Leadership team is very rude and passive aggressive. They do not and I mean do not appreciate staff and there are very few left that have vested time with the agency. If you are a glutton for punishment, this is the place for you!
Productive, fun place but not enough career advancement
Research Technical Assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL 60601 – February 20, 2018
Environment is very relaxed and coworkers are always willing to assist in difficult circumstances/very supportive. Staff does a great job planning outings. Great benefits...but not a lot of room for career advancement. You can easily become stagnant.
CRA (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 10, 2018
A typical day varies from chapter to chapter, as does management, job advancement, culture, etc. I worked for a moderately sized chapter that had some management issues, a high turn-over rate, and some serious denial.
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 29, 2018
My fist foray into non-profit. I learned so many things and met some fabulous people. I loved the feeling of doing something good for the cause. I wish there had been more opportunities for advancement. Left for more pay, but miss the service. I have helped with several events since leaving. Still have great friends there.
Very productive and fun workplace to work for. Great staffs and everyone help each other on everything that is needed to be completed.
ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) – Fargo, ND – November 7, 2017
A typical day at work was working on administration duties. These duties includes working on project, prepare and deliver mails, working on word, excel, and powerpoint as well as printing and fax. I learned so much from all of the above duties. I also like the independent work environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was that everyone help each other, respect one another and make the workplace fun place to work for on everyday basis.
The independent but still everyone help each other, great communication system.
Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 30, 2017
It was good experience for a first time job as an intern, otherwise for a full career I would recommend this job. I was assigned to the mailroom and to the internal auditor. As Mailroom intern I was required to fill the kitchens on both levels of the building as well as take stock in the stock room. as internal audit intern I was required to upload hard copy files onto the computer as well as help go through the audits. The culture there is what a typical office workplace would be with meetings and office work.
good if going into business, they have all departments
intern didnt have certain benefits until become full time
Constituent Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – November 28, 2017
The national Alzheimer's Assc is a decent organization, but the Syracuse chapter is awful. Leadership is full of themselves and treat employees like children. Those in charge refuse to reflect on poor performance, instead choosing to blame subordinates. The organization offers good salaries and benefits, but despite these attractions people frequently leave due to their bosses.
Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 30, 2017
I love the cause, but advancement is low. Work place bullies in management in the Medical and Scientific Relations department. The CEO is the best and is doing great things for the Association. Salaries are competitive.
Graphic Design Specialist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 3, 2018
The Alzheimer's Association is a wonderful company with a wonderful mission. Working for the Association is difficult for anyone working in the creative field, as more often than not, someone with no creative training will be calling the shots and micromanaging every step of the process.
