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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Health Care Service Coordinator in Spokane, WA

    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The co-workers seemed to care a lot about the cause, and would be very supportive of one another. Good pay as well.

    Cons

    Management didn't seem to care about anyone or the cause. Just to make money and leave. They always talked down to us and were all around rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that we're people too, and we care about what we do. Don't treat us like animals because you're the bosses. Also, remember what MDA is all about.
