    Pros

    Vacation time, if you get the opportunity to use it.

    Cons

    Constant turnover, less than competitive pay, work-life balance was way off, unrealistic goals and boiler-room fear driven sales mentality. March of Dimes has clearly been losing revenue and major donors over the past several years. The foundation has lost focus of building relationships and is more focused on "get the dollars in the door however you can as fast as you can" and that greedy attitude drove away a lot of our major and long-time donors. When you have Kmart as one of your largest partners, it's like having the titanic as your lifeboat. The values of this organization fostered a culture of negativity across our whole state. Over 2/3 of the entire state's workforce has resigned in the last 18 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a major deep dive into your donor stewardship culture, relationships ultimately win, desperation and greed is not flattering. Focus on the immense redundancy of your data management tools, CRM, and reporting.. a lot of unnecessary double-entry and inefficient processes. SPEND MONEY ON ADVERTISING, nobody knows what you do and media partnerships get you bus shelters and billboards right in the areas of town where you're most likely to reach the people that have the least to give. Pay your community directors competitively with other non-profits. It's costing you more to hire and train sub-par people for the same position every 12 months than it would be to hire a good person who will stay, that is just common sense. Develop an on boarding program that consists of more than a checklist and a few short videos. Finally, the most important.. lead with positivity and integrity.

    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.
