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

    Pros

    After polio, MOD moved to birth defects, and later to pre-term birth. Focus on having a 'healthy' full-term pregnancy is a admirable/positive goal.

    Cons

    Lip service, at best, is made to the MOD's public mission. HUGE emphasis on fundraising even for the non-fundraising staff. The organization was spread all over the state, so you either spent time traveling or on the phone constantly. Executive level managers played favorites and had their 'cliche'. In the cliche, you were golden, outside the cliche, you had a target on your back. Poor executive leadership at the state level. Employers are expected to make contributions back to the organization. If you at in a upper level position, you're expected to contribute $1,000 of your salary annually.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some 'real' leadership skills and don't pay lip service to it. Train/support the fundraising employees and respect the mission and the programs that support the mission. Programmatic activity should not be considered a 'cost' center. Build partnerships and stop being territorial. MCH is a tough field with many organiztions working toward the same goal. Step back the strong emphasis on fundraising and focus on why the funds are being raised. Stop expecting the only 'good' volunteers are those who bring in major funding.
