No opinion of CEO

I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Worthy charity that has many years experience and success in fundraising and supporting area families dealing with MDA. Effective training.

Cons

Ideal candidates will be outgoing with exceptional communication skills, but most positions in a local office will be temporary.

Advice to Management

Considering the skill set that is needed to be successful in many of the positions in a local office, using temporary employees is a gamble. The use of temps, rather than hiring exceptional employees for fundraising diminishes it's effectiveness, in my opinion.

    Pros

    There is a satisfaction that you are helping others and doing good
    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.
