    I worked at Madd full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My bosses always had my back. They supported me and encouraged me and tried to help me learn. Even when their leadership was being tough on them, they always encouraged our team.

    Cons

    Toxic environment. I believe it's from the board on down. When I left, many people were jumping ship as well because of the distrusting atmosphere. I constantly felt like I had to watch my back because there's a lot of firing/questionable resignations. It constantly felt like a proverbial witch-hunt. The senior leadership doesn't offer any consolation for those left behind and kept giving hints of more changes on the...

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. They know what they're doing. And if a termination does occur, give the entire office some consolation. Sure it may be a corporate-style non-profit. But it need not be cutthroat. The MADD I left was far different from the MADD I joined. Also offer a ladder of growth. There were many people who, if not resigning because of the toxicity of the environment, left because there was no upward mobility....

    "No Support and didn't understand kids"

      I worked at Madd full-time

      Pros

      On the rare occasion I could reach someone at the company, they were friendly.

      Cons

      Thrown into jobs way outside my job description and qualifications with no training or support. Their method of pretending no kids will drink underage is ignorant.

      I worked at Madd full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Very rewarding helping Victims of Impaired Driving

      Cons

      They want people with College Degrees but they don't offer the salary that is expected even for entry level positions. My daughter who has a one year job experience at her employer and no college made $3.00 an hour more than me with a Bachelor's Degree. I could have handled that as it was a rewarding job. However the hours were long and I was a salaried employee so if I broke down my salary with the hours I was barely...

      Advice to Management

      Pay employees what they deserve. Especially people with degrees. National Office seems to be so far removed from all that is truly happening in the field.

      Amazing leadership and great clarity in sharing its vision with all staff.

      Stay committed to great management

      I worked at Madd full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Met many good people both employees, volunteers and victims. Given opportunity to advance career with not much supervisory experience. Was given support by direct supervisor and some National office staff but it was inconsistent. The relationship I had with my direct supervisor was one of the highlights of my time with MADD. Was given opportunities to try new things and implement new strategies and vision. Good benefits...

      Cons

      Expectations were unrealistic - lip service given to work/life balance but 14 hour days were normal and considered part of the job. 6 hours travel time plus an 8 hour work day with no overnight hotel allowed. Lack of strategic direction or taking too long to implement change was common at the National level. Organization has difficulty communicating mission and case for support to a broad audience. Too many staff focused...

      Advice to Management

      MADD is an organization that is well-respected and well-known across a broad section of the community, most Americans 35 and up have some idea of what MADD is; unfortunately many of those perceptions are outdated and create barriers to fundraising, recruiting volunteers and community engagement. MADD has an opportunity to lead the conversation in drugged driving but seems to be afraid of taking a role. Without significant...

      Pros

      Moms who suffered tragedy are passionate about the mission.

      Cons

      Management have ridiculous expectations. The mission is lost now.

      Advice to Management

      MADD is pretty irrelevant now. 99.9% of the public knows not to drink and drive.
