I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The employees at the District Level are typically helpful. The administrators are AMAZING and consistently go above and beyond. The Directors could use some management/leadership training though.

Cons

The Divisional Team is SO far removed from the mission, it's ridiculous! They do not know how to communicate well with others and its always all about the money raised (which doesn't typically go where the donors/sponsors/families think it does). They care nothing about he people and turn-over is astronomical!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Definitely take the time to train and develop. It needs to start with upper management. The leadership iis VERY VERY poor.

    Pros

    Knowing that you are working to improve the lives of people living with muscular dystrophy is very satisfying.

    Cons

    Depending on which office you work in and who your immediate supervisor is, MDC has some issues around negative work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MDC needs to invest in a qualified, experienced dedicated HR manager to address some of the issues around poor job satisfaction and high employee turnover.
