    Pros

    The families who simply wanted cures are wonderful! Vacation time isn't bad if you are there long enough

    Cons

    I was lied to durnig my interview, my executive director (who was really only 1/2 step above me) was unbeleivably unprofessional. I left MDA almost two years ago, and I am still recovering. I'm an extremely resislient person with incredible endurance (which is why I lasted more than three years), but my employment with MDA was a traumatic one.

    I was expected to give my life to the company. My family and my health were of little to no concern to them, yet I was expected to be so concerned about someone else's health that I'd work 13-15 hour days.

    I was expected to drive into all hours of the night on many occasions. After 1.5 years, I finally got doctors orders stating that I was not to be driving past 10 pm or before 6 am because of the insane expectations put on me.
