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

    Pros

    Very little. The only good thing to come to mind is the abundance of paid holidays.

    Cons

    Where to begin. Management is seriously lacking, and that is being generous. MDA hires young, inexperienced people who cannot lead and then lets the district fail. The district and divisional management in the Milwaukee region is too engrossed with gossiping, playing favorites and being friends to truly manage.

    The most heinous part of the Milwaukee office is one employee in particular who is a 100% bully who forced 4 people in one year to leave MDA with her awful, abusive and rude behavior. When multiple people brought this to management's attention, it was ignored. In any other company, this person would be fired for her poor attitude, lack of professionalism and inability to do their job, but at MDA they were protected by higher-ups who they had befriended.

    There is a strong sense of those who have been at MDA the longest versus "the newbies" which creates a toxic, unprofessional, uncomfortable and competitive work environment. When this, again, was brought to management it was swept under the rug. In fact, management is one of the biggest parts of this unprofessional atmosphere as they would rather be friends with those they like on a personal level then to do their job.

    The Milwaukee MDA office can be summed up as follows: a trip back in time to middle school!

    Advice to Management

    Get management that has experience! The Milwaukee district needs real leadership, not a twenty-something who has no idea what is means to manage. Also review complaints against employees and work to resolve the issues. Bullying is not just a problem for school-age children. The lack of response to this real, serious issue goes all the way up to HR and the National level. The best thing to do when it comes to the Milwaukee office is to clean house!

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

    Pros

    The families are great and you really form a bond with your co-workers. Great days off including birthday and hire date.

    Cons

    The Director is under qualified. She is unaware of how to effectively handle staff and is very unprofessional. She has unrealistic expectation and tries to manipulate situations. The last minute schedule to work nights and weekends is annoying. As an employee, you are over worked and underappreciated.
