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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunity to make networking connections

    Cons

    Almost everything at the MDA is a "con" on my list including compensation, promotions - which don't happen, company values - they have no idea what their values are or where the organization is going, management - management that is hired is not qualified or have the appropriate experience.
