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

Pros

The families we get to work with are the most amazing people you will ever meet, and the vast majority of the staff are deeply dedicated to advancing the mission.

Cons

MDA is in a period of intense change, with an all-new executive team coming on board this year and making sweeping changes. Radical change may be just what the organization needs, but it makes for an unstable and uncertain work environment where no one ever feels secure in their jobs.

Advice to Management

Start "walking the walk" regarding employees being our most valuable resource, and start promoting from within.

    I have been working at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great families, amazing sponsors! Everyday is a different day!

    Cons

    Untrained management and unrealistic expectations! The higher you get up the chain at MDA the less you work. It is unfortunate for the sponsors and families that most of the funds raised are used to fund large travel budgets and salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and get in and work along side your teams.
