I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

MDA is the best company that I have worked for. The cause is hands down one of the best out there and you can truly own your development and success. I am challenged every week and love every minute of it.

Cons

There is a lot of nights and weekends in this role but so goes event planning and anything in the nonprofit industry.

    I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association

    Pros

    Great organizational mission and cutting-edge research. The employees really care about clients and making a difference. You'll learn a lot about muscle disease and cause-related marketing.

    Cons

    Doesn't take very good care of staff. No raises when I was there, no compensation time even when you're at events all weekend long. MDA's fundraising style and campaigns are so specific, that I didn't learn much about fundraising in general. There was no emphasis on professional development outside of very specific organizational training; I was not allowed to attend networking events.

    I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association

    Pros

    The job itself is a good opportunity for a first job. Ways to improve necessary skills like sponsor relations, communications, meeting budget goals, and more.

    Cons

    Company does not have a solid brand and no plan to improve it. Company as a whole is behind the times. Does not encourage creativity or improvement of programs. National management is out of touch for what happens in the field. Local office has poor management. My divisional director told me she did not like "dealing with office drama". Unfortunately no management leads to more drama and bad office culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job in cleaning out the up upper management but it's time to take a close look at the field. Someone who has been at MDA for a long time might be valuable or they could be very detrimental to the success of the company.
