    Pros

    Upbeat environment, everyone seems genuinely happy doing their job

    Cons

    So focused on the budget today that it doesn't seem like the future and long term effects are even taken into consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the long run than this weeks budget...

    Pros

    Meeting the families, being at camp

    Cons

    As not to offend - don't feel honored if you are selected to work for MDA. Most likely you have been out of college for <5 years and are eager to get into the nonprofit world. You will accept the seemingly fair salary pay. For the starstruck, getting the title of Executive Director is all you need to hear. Don't let this title fool you as an applicant or fool you as an employee who works under an ED. Executive Directors are hired with no previous experience and are merely puppets in the show. For employees that have lasted more than 2-3 years they are considered veterans due to the HIGH turnover rate. Overtime these 'veteran' employees will become bitter and jaded by having to re explain program and events to new employees over and over again. Don't put yourself in this position. Look for a company with good reviews, consider the star rating and do your research!

    Advice to Management

    I have the names of a few employees that negatively impact the Association and local office in which they work.
