I worked at NAMI full-time

Pros

variety of tasks
board members are very inviting and offer good advice and networking opportunities
supports funding for high risk population and the county organizations that develop and execute the programs to support them

Cons

lot of admin worked related to membership
too small
organization lacks its own voice and generally just jumps on to the coalition band wagon with out the ability to add much input or analysis

    Pros

    Expectations for good work are minimal.

    Cons

    NAMI is bought and paid for by pharmaceuticals. Alot of senior management time is spent catering to the pharma agenda (e.g. no formularies, access to the most expensive and least effective medicine, etc.). Worse, however, is that they deny all this and view themselves as running the people's organization. It isn't so. Top managers are self absorbed, spoiled and clueless. The National BOD consists of executive directors of chapters so governance is impossible and standards are toothless.
