I have been working at March of Dimes full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Love the mission, the people and the cause. The companies involved and families are amazing and you see your hard work pay off.

Cons

Those who are in higher position are greatly under skilled. Whether they have worked their way up, thrown into the position or a new hire many are under paid and no education. They have poor management skills and not used to over seeing employees. Makes for work/life balance difficult. Many also do not have their own children, so it makes it hard to respect when family comes first.

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive....barely. There really are no more positives at all about this organization.

    Cons

    Where to begin. The organization is a joke when it comes to money being raised going anywhere except its own pockets. Spends millions on pointless seminars and gatherings. Management only cares about the preservation of themselves as opposed to making sure the office is run properly. Also, management could not be more condescending. It is rampant across the country where management (executive directors, state directors, etc) look down on those in positions below theirs. These are facts that cannot be ignored and after my short time there would NEVER be a part of anything March of Dimes related again. They are like the Wizard of Oz...No Heart, No Brains!, and No Courage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solve problems internally by actually solving the problem. Nonprofits are not supposed to be run like corporations with robotic management that are quick to point blame away from themselves and treat employees like they are line items instead of people. Actually do some good with the millions you raise!! You don't do a damn thing but pay yourselves great salaries, throw yourselves great parties and vacations, and claim to tackle a problem that is too diverse in cause to be of any help whatsoever.
