    Pros

    You get a lot of experience in a nonprofit. MoD's offices are very small and allow to gain one-on-one experience with higher up positions.

    Cons

    The only thing I can recommend is do not work for a non profit unless you are completely infatuated with organization. The best results come from people who are passionate and dedicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be able to be considered for "Community Director", one must have at least 3 years of sales experience.

    Pros

    I loved taking potential donors on NICU tours and knowing families who have, or have lost babies. Many remain friends.

    Cons

    Pervasive negative environment and lazy state director who was not monitored and misrepresented productive staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your own training videos and practice positive principles taught; like celebrating EVERY victory, small, med and large. Learn best motivational/recruiting/sales practices- TED Talk, perhaps. Respect team, show humility. Highest management, please, mentor or replace regional level directors with constant turnover. They need to be accountable problem solvers and stop blaming those they neglect and intimidate. Honestly, I was stunned by the negativity and being labeled a troublemaker when going through proper channels to express concerns.

    Pros

    My immediate supervisor is great - she brings up the other employees in the office, always being positive and ready to lead.

    Cons

    Your to-do list seems never ending, although this can be ok. Working in a small unit can mean you are responsible for many activities outside your specified job description.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constant communication is key.
