I worked at Michael J. Fox Foundation

Pros

Offers great visibility and experience at a fast-paced, results oriented medical research foundation

Cons

Little opportunity for movement within the Foundation, leadership is reticent to give additional responsibility. Competition among fundraisers/leadership for prospects and donors.

Advice to Management

Management should work harder to identify exceptional talent and do what they can to help advance their careers within the organization, rather than waiting until someone is frustrated, unhappy or has been offered another opportunity elsewhere.
