Development Director (Current Employee) – Valley View, OH – February 28, 2018
The goal each and every day is to bring funding to support our very important mission. (Healthy Moms and Healthy Babies).The job is very difficult with large goals and larger rewards you can change out comings. Power stuff.
My office was a great place to work. My co workers were passionate and dedicated and lovely people.I enjoyed the office environment and the people there. The organization overall was similar to others of it's size and purpose. Struggling with dwindling donation for the general public and looking to go in another direction, which led the appointment of a new foundation president. The new president cut many jobs and left a lot of unemployed. Hopefully that will contribute to more stability in the orgainzation.
Organization needs to be more internally mission focused
Executive Director of Market Development (Former Employee) – North Carolina – January 1, 2018
Unfortunately the March of Dimes mission education and focus are completely lost on it's field staff. The employees who are in the community organizing events and raising money should be integrated in the details of the mission; including what specific mission work is taking place and what progress is being made. Only very high level volunteers are valued (Boards, Chairs, etc) and there is little to no focus on recruiting, engaging or retaining volunteers that could be helpful in a day to day capacity.
Too heavily focused on fundraising activities only, low insight into actual mission work taking place
NO Respect for your time, hardwork or dedication to the mission
Development Manager (Former Employee) – New England – November 28, 2017
Lack of respect from management. Don't bother doing extra work or going above and beyond for your colleagues or volunteers because at the end of the day they only care about the money you are brining in, whether your job is a fundraiser or not. They're evaluation system is beyond dated, and while new management was brought in, it doesn't seem they want to change with the times. New ideas were never welcomed and events have become old and stale.
Development (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – November 27, 2017
The March of Dimes does great work and I love the organization and still support and plan to volunteer else where. If they do not get rid of the management and childish issues the fundraising will continue to decline. Pushing someone out and them telling you that you “a little too young for the job” should never be acceptable!!
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 30, 2017
This was a fun company to work for. Way to much movement within the company. There aren't many options to move up or get a full time job. I loved planning the events and the people that I worked with in the market were great.
The March of Dimes was a very wonderful place to work
Public Health Education Coordinator (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – October 26, 2017
I had the opportunity to work with three wonderful women. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed our work and we worked as a team I was responsible for six counties and it entailed going to schools and talking about birth defects and other public health issues. We were also responsible for having telephones once a year which we all had to participate in.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 5, 2017
I volunteered and assisted with this event and it was the best thing I ever experienced. the atmosphere was very calming and comforting. to see a lot of people to come together to support a worthy cause was amazing.
Community Director (Current Employee) – Pine Brook, NJ – August 19, 2017
I work mostly from home and visit the office once a week with other directors. Great benefit. Excellent relationships with company and corporate sponsors.I need to make more money so I welcome more responsibility and flexibility to develop more sponsors of my own and expand my scope of charitable donations.
Contracted Event Specialist (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – August 10, 2017
I loved working for the March of Dimes. It gave me several opportunities to meet people and raise funds to support premature babies. I went out to several events and brought my family to share the experiences with me.
