    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
