Does great work, but was overworked

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at American Heart Association full-time for more than 8 years

ProsYou are helping save lives. There are many departments that allow work from home. There are very talented people working there, many of whom have been there for a long time. Depending on the role, it could be very satisfying. The interview process consists of very long interviews, so be prepared.

ConsThe hours! The workload was never ending and frankly unreasonable. There was no bonuses during my last 2 years due to the economy, and you are reviewed constantly (bi-annually, plus peer reviews, 360 reviews). The workload was due to never ending, understaffed projects.
