As with the current Glass Door reviews by employees and former employees, it appears as if the majority of these "reviews" are done by current CEO's or board members to bolster a sagging organization, quickly proving itself to be irrelevant. Although the Red Star program is one of their only viable and enviable programs, even they will soon be without jobs and without a mission if the current CEO has her way. She has gutted a once proud organization with complete lack of compassion or animal knowledge and has slashed staff by over 65%. Mostly lay-offs of those who had worked with AH for many, many years. Almost all laid off without severance, logic or compassion. The Film & TV Unit continues to be a smoke screen for the entertainment industry and as evidenced by the media all too well recently, in the filming of the HBO series Luck, horses are still being killed for entertainment and this is often hidden from the public while productions are given the ever-ready rubber stamp. I believe this organization is quickly on it's way out and these bolstered reviews are a last-ditch effort to save a sinking ship. It pays to be a CEO in the organization, as it appears as if those are the only jobs safe at the moment. The outside world has little respect for the organization and most don't even know of its existence, continually confusing it with HSUS and ASPCA. Instead of putting the organization on the map, the current CEO has obliterated it completely. Current high level management has virtually no animal experience, education or knowledge and it shows. Employees are often not treated with respect and retaliation is a common occurrence. Check out the Glass Door reviews for the real story.
