    Former Employee - Service Coordinator 

    I worked at British Red Cross full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great colleagues and volunteers, great learning opportunities and a general amazing opportunity to help those in need. Work and life balance is good and there are plenty of paid holiday.

    Cons

    The salary is a joke. I could never have supported a family and could not put any savings aside to to and see my family and close friends. It's hard to move into new roles within the organisation and progress career wise. The organisation does not invest in you to gain skills outside your role, e.g to become a manager. I felt quite isolated and relying only on a local manager and did not feel that I was part of the larger organisation. I was frustrated but didn't feel like I had anyone to raise my opinions to when my manager and I was not on the same page.

    I have been working at British Red Cross full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Its a very well recognized organization world wide, I have worked for different National Societies and the best part is that every country works differently because is always led by the needs of the people. Set aside its flexibility, its great because it is supported by a great network of human and material resources, and all that comes from the good will of people! 90% or our job is done by volunteers, so its amazing to be the conductor of so much energy, knowledge & humanity

    Cons

    Its so big... sometimes the right hand does not know what the left one is doing! There is a very complicated structure so its hard to know who to go to if you have a question or is easy "to re-invent the wheel" unnecessarily. People in high positions do not normally have operational experience & make decisions that are unpractical to apply in the field
