I have been working at Cystic Fibrosis Foundation full-time (More than 5 years)
-First charity to develop "venture philanthropy" business model recognized by Forbes, Fortune, Harvard Business School, Wall Street Journal and the New York Times
-Developed drug to treat 4% of patients with disease; approved by FDA in 2012
-Very results oriented
-Very efficent; 90 cents of every dollar goes to medical research
-Relentless in drive to find a cure for cystic fibrosis
-Extremely intense and taxing pace of work
-Some employees become burned out
-A very atypical nonprofit -- runs very much like a "for profit" (also "pro")
-Very bottom-line driven (this is also a "pro")
