    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time

    Pros

    In the 8 years I was employed by MDA I was promoted several times culminating to a Regional Position, managing one of the highest revenue producing markets in the organization. It was rewarding to work and raise funds in the communities where we served families. The only pros of these job were the people we served, my colleagues and sponsors.

    Cons

    The senior management is the most unqualified group of individuals I have ever crossed paths professionally in my 18 year career in development. Employees are undervalued, over worked and made to feel incompetent, even when successful. There were several times that I fielded phone calls from senior management as they were on golf courses (for leisure) or their child's game, to reprimand my team over a minor concern (while we were clocking 12 hour days). THERE IS NO DIVERSITY in this organization, which is concerning. WHILE THE MAJORITY OF SUCCESSFUL EMPLOYEES ARE WOMEN, THERE ARE NO WOMEN IN SENIOR LEADERSHIP. It is a "good ole boys" club, and frankly a little concerning that it remains so in 2015. There is little work /life balance, however as a manager I ensured my staff had off-the-record comp time - otherwise they would not have lasted a year. Family life was always expected to take a back seat to your job, which you were drastically underpaid. I came from a very progressive area of the company (Mid Atlantic Division )and was shocked at the incompetent and unprofessional culture that existed throughout the organization. I could not get out fast enough. There is no room for growth (particularly if you are a woman). I hope the new CEO can clean up the mess his predecessors left. The mission of MDA still motivates me, I still contribute and volunteer where I can. However, with its current culture they will continue to hemorrhage competent and passionate people - and at the end of the day it is those we serve that will suffer.
