Pros

MADD supports a great cause and has great grassroots support in the community. They are pushing new technologies from manufacturers to prevent an intoxicated individual from starting their vehicle.

Cons

There is large opposition from the liquor industry and defense attorneys. Amending laws can prove to be difficult even though DWI problems continue.

    Pros

    - Positive feeling, contributing to a great social good.

    Cons

    - The organization has made some strategic mistakes over the past decade or so, and received negative press as a result. Viewed negatively by some.
    - Culture at the National Office in Irving. If you are not from, "the South" (and west of Mississippi River), strong chance you'll be treated poorly. It's very clubby and cliquey, lots of ongoing double standards, lacking in professionalism.
    - Managers are not well monitored by senior leadership. Workplace bullying, as a tactic to push disliked employees out the door (and to allow cheaper replacements), occurs with alarming regularity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - A code of conduct is needed. One that will be enforced.
    - The organization is top heavy. It's an unnecessary use of money, disheartening if you work there because of the mission. At the National Office, despite significant layoffs in recent years, there is a separate CEO, COO, CFO, CLO and VP of Policy - 5 separate executive leadership roles (with high compensation, per 990 report) - which seems too much given total national employment of roughly 250 staff (many part time).

    Pros

    Some employees were directly impacted by drunk driving and therefore, highly devoted and able to share their passion for their work
    New CEO is sincere in her work as victim advocate

    Cons

    Organization is scared of their founder and their history
    After 30 years, many people perceive that the problem of drunk driving is largely solved
    Overly-complicated mission statement (three focus areas)
    Brand and message is not a symbol of hope, organization is "against" something
    Overly dependent on aging donor base and use archaic fundraising practices to prey on elderly
    Little direction from HQ on program implementation
    MADD offers very few solutions for how people can help
    Organization continues to reinforce stereotypes
    Three years of layoffs has reduced the HQ staff by half
    National office allows little freedom and creativity to staff at local level
    Strong disconnect in program implementation, messaging and fundraising between HQ and field offices
    Highly controversial, as many believe the organization is against alcohol

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add color to your organization. And your way of thinking.
