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

Pros

Opportunity to help people in need. Decent salary, but lots of events on weekends.

Cons

Poor management - My director supervisor was a twit. She did zero work except write nasty write up emails about my colleagues and I to her superiors. She offered little direction and never wanted to discuss issues.

Badly organized programs - MDA does events, such as Shamrocks and Lock ups. These are both antiquated programs, and no one is interested in buying a Shamrock or spending hours locked up in a restaurant.

Culture - Mainly women, so expect LOTS of cattiness. We were forced to dress up, but people rarely came into our office. It was a non-profit -- why dress up?

Advice to Management

Get rid of most of your directors and regional management. They do not offer any help to staff, except when it comes to throwing them under the bus.

    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Upbeat environment, everyone seems genuinely happy doing their job

    Cons

    So focused on the budget today that it doesn't seem like the future and long term effects are even taken into consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the long run than this weeks budget...
