Worked in the community as a community liasion.
Community Outreach Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNSeptember 15, 2015
A typical day at work included outreach services, recruitment of volunteers, facilitated workshops across the city, planned Awards ceremonies and took place in assisting with marketing strategies. I learned a great deal about planning and implementing ground work for a new program that was beneficial to the community. The management team could have been much better. My co-workers could have be more friendlier and accepting of others. There was nothing hard about the job. The most enjoyable part was facilitating workshops.
Pros
The benefits were like none I have ever experienced.
Cons
The CEO ended the program.

Red Flags with Great Health Benefits
Executive (Former Employee) –  KansasJuly 1, 2014
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
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 Cause, not so great work/life balance
Community Director (Former Employee) –  KansasSeptember 22, 2014
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...,,
Pros
great committees and volunteers
Cons
low wages, management not held accountable, bad work/life balance

Your co workers
Executive Director (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAMarch 19, 2014
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.
Pros
a great mission
Cons
national leadership
