Great Cause, not so great work/life balance
Community Director (Former Employee), KansasSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: great committees and volunteers
Cons: low wages, management not held accountable, bad work/life balance
Can quickly go up the ladder if you are part of the "in-crowd" Unrealistic goals for new-comers. State chapter not as "hands-on" as they first lead you to believe. Small office with upper management not held accountable.
Great volunteer committees that don't get enough recognition.
Be ready to spend every day doing something for March for Babies even in the thick of special events...,,

Productive and semi-casual workplace where everybody cares
Communications Coordinator (Current Employee), Westborough, MassachusettsJuly 3, 2014
One of the most underrated parts of the job is that because it is a nonprofit you learn a little bit of everything.

Red Flags with Great Health Benefits
Executive (Former Employee), KansasJuly 1, 2014
Pros: benefits are great (practically free to have a baby) and 9-5 work schedule
Cons: big fundraising expectations within first year, small volunteer base, undeveloped board and very little state and national support
Great benefits and salary are available to salaried staff. However, poor training, unrealistic expectations and job insecurity are big red flags. Workload unmanageable without recruitment of non paid interns and volunteers.

Pros: mission
Cons: terrible pay. no direction or support from management. not a team environment.
Executive Director that encourages her staff to "play dumb". No year over year relationships with sponsors or key volunteers due to bridges being burned. Terrible place to work.

Time manageable and worked with great people
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Round Lake Beach, IlMay 19, 2014
Pros: time manageble
Cons: relying on sales as most of your check
In March of Dimes I mostly just focused on selling the merchandise and organizing their products. It was an easy job and not that much of a hassle.

Your co workers
Executive Director (Former Employee), San Jose, CAMarch 19, 2014
Pros: a great mission
Cons: national leadership
That South Bay Division staff are the hardest, most dedicated staff that I have had the opportunity work along side with. Staff meetings were collaborative and informative.

Each staff member would take the lead to run the weekly staff meetings. Fun traditions emerged creating a light hearted meeting and opening away to addressing issues and recognizing great performances.

The supportive work environment from the other State Executive Directors provided a positive work place also.
