    Pros

    You get a lot of experience in a nonprofit. MoD's offices are very small and allow to gain one-on-one experience with higher up positions.

    Cons

    The only thing I can recommend is do not work for a non profit unless you are completely infatuated with organization. The best results come from people who are passionate and dedicated.

    Advice to Management

    To be able to be considered for "Community Director", one must have at least 3 years of sales experience.

    Pros

    Great training, tons of great experiences, never a dull moment! With the number of events throughout the year you are often juggling multiples at a time, so there is never time to be bored. The training for the computer programs and MFB were outstanding. It is amazing to go home at the end of the day knowing you are doing good in the world!

    Cons

    There is A LOT to do on a daily basis and often you feel like didn't accomplish much at the end of the day. There is tons of work and not a lot of employees to provide assistance. I couldn't have done it without the help of our interns.


  3. I was surprised at the unprofessional, juvenile, negative practices of regional management.

    Pros

    I loved taking potential donors on NICU tours and knowing families who have, or have lost babies. Many remain friends.

    Cons

    Pervasive negative environment and lazy state director who was not monitored and misrepresented productive staff.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your own training videos and practice positive principles taught; like celebrating EVERY victory, small, med and large. Learn best motivational/recruiting/sales practices- TED Talk, perhaps. Respect team, show humility. Highest management, please, mentor or replace regional level directors with constant turnover. They need to be accountable problem solvers and stop blaming those they neglect and intimidate. Honestly, I was stunned by the negativity and being labeled a troublemaker when going through proper channels to express concerns.

    Pros

    Great cause, mission driven, fun special events

    Cons

    Very top heavy, if you have an issue or don't get paid on time- corporate employees could care less and are very unresponsive. There are truly too many of them to be so unresponsive. If you don't get paid on time, you will need to escalate it to get anything done. Processes at this company are very drawn out and they are not very compassionate or understanding of their employees. It's just a paycheck to them.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job efficiently, pay employees on time, respond to your emails and voicemails. Check on employees who are in a 2 person office and make sure they are being treated well and that the office is a healthy environment to be productive in. No one ever checked on me my whole year at the March of Dimes. No accountability for Managers, because all they have is a phone call each week. Anyone can fake it for an hour.

    Pros

    Great insurance, paid time off, and great people.

    Cons

    Amount of overtime, lack of support, terrible salary when compared with other nonprofits.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate others besides management. The people you aren't appreciating are the ones doing all of the work. It costs a lot more to hire and train a new employee than to keep the ones you have by giving them a token salary increase.

    Every donor should ask specifically how their dollars are spent in their community. They aren't.

    Pros

    Can't think of a darn thing.

    Cons

    Too many to mention... from leadership at National that believe being in their position for 30 years is a good thing (can you say non-innovative, stale, stuck in the 1970s) to salaries that are pathetic.

    Pros

    An opportunity to impact peoples lives positively, while increasing awareness around prematurity, birth defects, and infant mortality

    Cons

    Too many mid level managers and lack the direction and forward thinking needed for future growth.

    Advice to Management

    Start from scratch. It's time to rethink how you do business since most companies are bottom up with their charitible giviing replacing the top down approach.
