    Company is in close contact with families helped and there are opportunities to meet them

    Cons

    Long hours
    Travel
    Little recognition for good job and quick to point out faults
    High stress
    Heavy amount of emails and deadlines
    Low morale
    There is a lot to get done and it is all equal priority

    Advice to Management

    Be clear with employees about what needs to get done and what is a priority. Offer aid to district offices that need help with work load. Work on employee morale, employees feel overworked and under appreciated.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The MDA name and the fact that you don't have to have any experience to do the work. Time off is a definite plus, we get all bank holidays and our birthday as well as anniversary with the company. Very laid back atmosphere, casual dress.

    Cons

    They don't match any contribution to 403B, have a 90 day probation period before benefits start. No raises or promotions. Management style is a hit or miss, my boss has absolutely no management experience before coming to MDA and still has no management skills after 5 years. Also has no work ethic and pushes everything off on the fundraiser position. This has been going on the entire time she has been with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be a manager like a corporation would expect. My current boss wouldn't last a day in a for-profit corporation in a management position. Urge fundraising coordinators to educate themselves regularly on new practices, ideas and research.
