    Pros

    The history of the organization is amazing. There are some great employees - mostly in the mid-level of coordinators and managers and a few directors. The organization does provide support and an important emotional connections for families of premature babies. At the national office most people seem to have a decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Senior management at national needs to be replaced - there's no other nice way to say it. People at the top have been there forever and are resistant to change. They run great people off. There is too much of a fundraising culture and archaic fundraising practices that are embarrassing (dime mailings, robo-calling). More of the money raised should go to programs. The organization is failing to make as much of a difference as it could, the focus is on raising more money instead of spending it wiser. The result is declining numbers year after year. It does not look optimistic that will change. There is limited growth as people at the top tend to stay there. Even jobs vacated end up "reevaluated" and ultimately not replaced. There is no senior person on revenue development or corporate partnerships and it doesn't even appear that filling those roles is a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to reevaluate your movement away from allowing telecommuting (when other organizations are moving in the opposite direction). Focus on the impact of your mission and the money will come, not the other way around. You need a new President and senior leadership to overhaul the organization or you will continue to struggle and lose great people.
