I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time (more than an 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

    The requirements of a fundraiser for this position is challenging. You don't have to have a lot of sales background to get this job, but once you do, you sales experience, if done correctly, will increase dramatically. Any fears of making cold calls, asking for the appointment, asking for a handout will disappear if you perform the job asked of you.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover in this position. You are considered senior staff if you have made it more than a year. They don't work to keep the staff that is succeeding, thus if you have any real talent, you tend to move on after that year marker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overwork your staff. You expect 50-60 hour weeks during FTB and MW call-outs, but you don't allow for any personal time. You burn your staff out. Set realistic goal based on population and potential.
