Director (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 13, 2018
The company continues to promote inept, unsupportive, intimidating egomaniacs that have their own agenda about successful initiatives. Overall, these senior managers lack the ability to be team-oriented, good listeners, understanding leaders and fail to appreciate that each market is different from another. They also fail to appreciate that the real work is done at the local levels, working day-to-day to reach families, individuals and businesses, cultivate those relationships and develop trust. JDRF International fails miserably at appreciating those arduous efforts and recognizing them appropriately. They need save money and eliminate the regional management team - only creates an unnecessary layer of confusion and mixed signals.
Benefits, vacation time
See above - overall poor regional and senior management
Clinical Trial Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 10, 2018
Terrific work environment with incredible flex work schedule. Challenging work environment and assignments. Dedicated and helpful staff. An extremely knowledgeable staff that only helps you be a better professional.
Lacking in management development and guidance. Direction and objections from management is often confusing and requires a great amount of independent thinking. Somes confusing. Play could be slightly better
Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 10, 2017
JDRF has a great mission, but the atmosphere is toxic. Great individuals working there, but awful management. Workdays can be long, but management generally strives to achieve employee work/life balance. Pay is OK, with annual raises.
Smart, hardworking employees
Awful managers, backstabbing and buck-passing is rampant
