    I worked at JDRF full-time (more than 10 years)


    The mission is wonderful. The support from our National Office is outstanding. Very positive experience working with our HR department, and other support functions...the best I've experienced in my 25 year career working with non-profits. Our local board members are wonderful. Benefits and salaries are good, and compare very favorably to other non-profits I've worked for.


    Sr. Management has always been a challenge at JDRF. Six CEO's in 10 years; speaks volumes of the IBOD's ability to hire right. It seems as long as they have a T1D connection they're in, regardless of experience running a non-profit. One would think this group of executives would have realized this by now. The most recent previous CEO and COO were abusive. It took 4 years for the IBOD to do anything about it, allowing them to destroy careers, damage self-esteem and lose quality people along the way. New chairman took action almost immediately upon being appointed. It may take some time to undo the damage, but there are already signs that JDRF is on the way back to being a premier non-profit organization.

    Positive Outlook
