I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

freedom, empowerment to share ideas, work with a diverse group of people

Cons

lots of weekend events, alot of work and reporting, but worth it

Advice to Management

don't get too far removed from fundraising because there is constant change and if you are too far removed then you won't have the best ideas or the recent experience from which to draw your ideas/advice.

    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time

    Pros

    The best thing are the client families that you help!

    Cons

    Horrible work-life balance! They expect you to drop everything, even last minute, to work nights and weekends with no comp days. Extremely unrealistic goals and expectations set by the regional office. Too much regional involvement in daily activities (multiple meetings with regional a week when you could have been doing your job) I had years of non profit experience before I worked for this company and this is by far the worst I've ever seen regarding "money focused" and they completely lose sight of "the cause". No feeling of job security. High turnover. Trained very poorly!

    I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At the end of the day you are fighting muscle disease and making lives better. After 5 years the time off is good. The job it self, the tasks and responsibilities are varied and interesting and can be challenging.

    Cons

    The constant turn over makes progress impossible. Constantly training someone new leaves no time to develop and grow. People beyond the office are beginning to listen but the people making the decisions, policies and programs have no clue how to do the jobs they are dictating to.

    Advice to Management

    Don't roll out new ideas, programs, procedures until you trouble shoot and work out the problems. Field test or do more field testing before implementing new things. Listen to the people doing the job. Stop talking about what you're planning to do and start talking about what you are doing. Stop talking in vague buzz words and team speak and tell us what's going on with plain honest communication.
