    I have been working at Madd full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility is great. Office appreciates family comes first. Love the mission and vision. Love support to victims and volunteers.

    Cons

    Communication is poor. Job support is poor. Very little transparency or trust. A lot of CYA and little teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the gap between execs and field. Shift focus from "don't do" to "what can be done" or nothing will improve.

    I worked at Madd full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Mission is phenominal. The victim/survivor support is fantastic.

    Cons

    The National Office works entirely different than the Field. There is no trust between the two. If you work in the field, you must understand that they do not appreciate innovation, boldness, or anything remotely outside of their control. Fundraising is too difficult because of the National Guidelines. Field Staff are truly just figure heads in the community.

    Advice to Management

    The ship is sinking....

    I worked at Madd part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Volunteers are the only thing holding this organization together. They give their time, tears and funds to make it livable for our victim service division.

    Cons

    National headquarters has lost focus and needs a cleaning out. They keep unqualified leaders across the Country just because of their loyalty to the National office.

    Advice to Management

    Start cleaning house from the top down. Starting with the CEO and COO.

    Pros

    Great mission in theory but in practice it is great burocracy.

    Cons

    They do lots of fundraising to deliver services. But in reality all go to salary in the national office. The national office executives are disconnected and at times a very rasist organization torward minorities employees. And lgbt people. Especially Vicky the COO.

    Advice to Management

    Get ready because soon you will sued for discrimination.

    I worked at Madd (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I interned here for a couple of months and it was a wonderful experience. The people involved in this organization are so amazing and helpful. I also gained good experience in my field. I was able to work from home.

    Cons

    I would say that the only downfall is that it was an unpaid internship.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work.
