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.
