    I worked at March of Dimes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At the ground level, staff is very committed to the mission and passionate about raising funds and awareness

    Cons

    The March of Dimes actually does very little, they raise funds, skim a large chunk off the top for administration and then pass that money through to others in the form of grants or political advocacy.

    Advice to Management

    There are some issues with ethics within the organization with several key individuals misconstruing work that outside entities are doing as "March of Dimes" work. If you're going to give grants, you should collect data to validate the impact of your grant programs and the grants should alignly closely with the msision.

    I have been working at March of Dimes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing work schedule - very flexible, often you can work from home, "full time" is only 35 hours a week
    Stellar Benefits - probably THE BEST insurance plan if you will be having babies!
    Passionate people - who doesn't support the cause of healthy babies!?

    Cons

    Very low pay, with little opportunity for advancement.
    High expectations that basically set you up for failure
    Resistance to change from the top of the organization, little control at the state or division level

    Advice to Management

    Although we were the first national nonprofit, and the first "march" of any kind - we need to target our audience and create a more marketable event. We need our events and our cause to stand out compared to the hundreds of other nonprofits we are competing with. Otherwise, you need to understand we will not see 10% growth YOY in every site!
