    Pros

    The families are wonderful and if management would just allow HCSCs to do what they need to do to serve the families, it would be an AWESOME position.

    Cons

    Sadly, MDA's attitude is no longer what can we do for our families, but what can our families do for MDA!

    Advice to Management

    Value the work of the HCSCs - they have a tremendous amount of responsibility, they can actually make a difference for families affected by neuromuscular disease and they are the face of MDA to the families you claim to serve! HCSCs should be paid more than an entry level salary.

    Pros

    Working with the families and clinics is really rewarding.

    Cons

    Low pay
    Long hours- including weekends
    Lots of travel
    Too many layers of management- nobody is accountable
    High turn-over rate
    Focus is on raising money, not on patient care
    Employee evaluations are not completed by directors

    Advice to Management

    Bring in someone to restructure your regional and divisional offices. District offices receive little assistance- even when they ask for it. Have a guideline for HCSC job duties with level of priority. Have employees in distric offices do reviews of their directors at all levels and require distric directors to complete employee evaluations on time.
