    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time

    Pros

    The families that we serve are some of the most inspiring people you will ever meet in your life! They reminded me all the time why I came into the office everyday! The other Health Care Service Coordinators, Fundraising Coordinators and Administrative Assistants are so passionate and driven. Great PTO, plenty of holidays and summer hours.

    Cons

    I came to the MDA because I believed in the mission. I left disheartened and with a bad taste in my mouth. First off there is little to no room for growth- especially if you work in Health Care Services. Perhaps the worst part are the people that lead the district offices (at least in the 2 district offices I worked with)! Executive Directors work remotely constantly. There were weeks where I saw my ED 1/2 a day out of an entire week. If they are in the office, their doors are shut and they are unavailable to lead. They are non responsive to emails and I have missed deadlines because of that. They require long advance for time off requests, but they never approve the time- even after multiple emails have been sent. I've personally seen my ED throw another employee under the bus for something she did, or rather, forgot to do.

    The worst part about management is the bully culture they promote. They waste their days publicly shaming their employees or gossiping about and making fun of clients (yes, clients), sponsors and coworkers in public. There were a few times at events where I felt embarrassed by their behavior and overheard attendees and clients making comments about their behavior. Consider yourself lucky if they are shaming you because they are also fans of the cold shoulder treatment. Because of this behavior, the two offices in my area have seen so much turnover. One girl only lasted a few weeks. I've watched too many wonderful, inspiring, successful people take their talents to other organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at who is running your district offices.
