    I worked at National Multiple Sclerosis Society full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a great cause. They provide phenomenal service, resources, and the largest private funder of MS research. Great opportunity to gain experience.

    Cons

    It takes forever to make a decision. They try to be all things to people with MS and sometimes can loose focus. Not a lot of career growth or potential. Recently went through reorganization and a lot of people are no longer with the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the diversity of thought and leadership.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    We had a 5:00 p.m. phone interview scheduled and at 5:15 p.m. she texted me to cancel the interview and thanked me for considering the position. Then she added that she hoped I would have a great rest of the week. I guess what employees say about the organization is true. What a waste of rescheduling my day for her.
