    I worked at National Multiple Sclerosis Society

    Pros

    Decent benefits, eroded in recent years.

    Cons

    Best to come from local chapter to national office, otherwise virtually no credibility. Cultish organization, very suspicious of anything not invented here. Disproportionate amount of resources expended on organizational power structure; far more attention to NMSS, the Society, than MS, the disease. Missing opportunities to network and collaborate, co-opted by big pharma. Driven by marketing and branding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    EVPs and other "leadership" are not generalists and should not dabble in other department's goals, budgets and evaluation to extent currently encouraged.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to advance, but can be limited because it is a small organization. Benefits are very good for a non-profit.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can at times be hard to achieve due to working events on the weekend. This is to be expected in an event driven nonprofit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the employees that work for you and given them the right tools and opportunities to improve in their careers.
