Challenges and changes
President (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, DEFebruary 12, 2016
While I always held the same position within the organization, the position changed throughout my tenure. Initially the organization was small, one of 100+ chapters. At the end of my time there were less than 40 due to mergers and realignments. Realignments enabled an organization to maximize its back office through shared services, while honing the ability to expand fund raising. This positions the organization to compete with other health oriented charities for the much needed research funding.

With so many pharmaceutical interventions and treatments available now, the cure should be in sight with this singular lens of effort.
Pros
Being part of something larger
Cons
Being part of something larger

Great organization with amazing staff and employee benefits
Associate Vice President, Call Center Operations (Former Employee) –  Denver, COOctober 11, 2013
The National MS Society's Information Resource Center, the organizations nationwide call center, is an extremely busy and frenetic environment. The "Specialists" or agents who take calls manage over 1,000 calls and 100 emails daily in addition to auditing social media contacts. The management team is supportive and the team is a collection of committed and hard-working Social Workers, predominately Master's level. It is challenging to work at the very busy pace and ensure Specialists obtain the training and education they need in order to skillfully answer client questions and manage the technology needed to perform their jobs. However, the team is incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and professional.
Pros
supportive co-workers, great benefits and 7 hour work day
Cons
extremely busy and stressful environment

The Regionalization of the MS Society has made it nothing but a corporate type environment.
Current staff (Current Employee) –  Houston TexasMarch 15, 2013
1) Too much office politics not just by peers but also VP level staff.
2) For a non-profit, it is nothing but profit minded people.
3) VP's state open door policy, but no one acts on that for fear of losing their job.
4) The VP's care more about numbers and own agenda's being presented to the board then taking care of the clients.
5) It is always commented that you can be replaced, very stressful environment to work in.
Pros
clients with ms
Cons
everything else.
