Team Challenge Endurance Manager (Former Employee) – Garden City, NY – January 16, 2014
My position as the Long Island Endurance Manager was very rewarding. There is no such thing as a "typical day" at CCFA! Everyday is different and you will never get bored! My responsibilities included but were not limited to - selling the program, recruiting participants (to raise critical dollars as well as train for a half marathon), helping them reach a fundraising goal and then the best part, seeing them cross the finish line! The position is very demanding and requires you to be able to have a flexible schedule.
How anyone can even consider doing this full time is beyond me, unless your car is paid for, fairly new, you are going to take a beating on Maintenance and on most days the real money makers are when you are taking the biggest risks and on top of all that the taxes you have to pay is if you have your own business the 1099 doesn't even subtract their fees
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – January 1, 2017
CCFA is advanced and dedicated to improving the lives of those with Crohn's and Colitis. This is a very rewarding organization to volunteer for. I enjoyed the social and educational aspects that CCFA had to offer.
Dramatic and constant turnover due to gross mismanagement
Senior Director of Information Technology (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 30, 2012
CCFA does not value its employees. Executive leadership is cliquey and disinterested in the day to day operation of the Foundation. From a technology perspective, Executive leadership allows preferred employees to make technology decisions over the research and expertise of the technical staff, resulting in tragic and easily preventable mistakes.
Anyone of any value in this organization leaves quickly. Those who stay do so because they have no where else to go.
