I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The requirements of a fundraiser for this position is challenging. You don't have to have a lot of sales background to get this job, but once you do, you sales experience, if done correctly, will increase dramatically. Any fears of making cold calls, asking for the appointment, asking for a handout will disappear if you perform the job asked of you.

Cons

There is a lot of turnover in this position. You are considered senior staff if you have made it more than a year. They don't work to keep the staff that is succeeding, thus if you have any real talent, you tend to move on after that year marker.

Advice to Management

Don't overwork your staff. You expect 50-60 hour weeks during FTB and MW call-outs, but you don't allow for any personal time. You burn your staff out. Set realistic goal based on population and potential.

    Pros

    Families they serve, summer camp, clinic

    Cons

    Upper management sucks. They agree with treating their employees like crap. So many HR violations DAILY. I wish I would've read this site first because all negative comments are on target.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Take a class on how to be a good, effective, motivating leader. There's signs all around : high turnover and disgruntled employees!

    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time

    Pros

    Knowing that you are working to improve the lives of people living with muscular dystrophy is very satisfying.

    Cons

    Depending on which office you work in and who your immediate supervisor is, MDC has some issues around negative work environment.

    Advice to Management

    MDC needs to invest in a qualified, experienced dedicated HR manager to address some of the issues around poor job satisfaction and high employee turnover.
