Good Opportunity for Development People
Development Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 20, 2016
March of Dimes in San Diego is a great small office that's is primarily focused on development. They do a gala and committees and large March for Babies walk campaigns. The mission is to improve the health of babies - so in my mind a great one to represent. I'd recommend working there if you like to build things, events, committees and the overall division. They hit a bit of a reboot a couple of years ago in terms of staff and board. Things seem solid under the new ED, who wants to work with people who want to build and are excited about it. She'll give you room to spread your wings and drive your projects IF you do. Job security is good there again if you are development oriented and self-starting. Not so much otherwise. Great organization, pretty nice office space, nice small staff, responsible with donor dollars.
Freedom to self-drive, opportunities for resume plumping, great mission, solid for development people, young ED
Mediocre benefits outside of salary and vaca, small office, not SD dedicated programs staff, sink or swim
