MDA was once a great place to work, but it has changed drastically. The people you meet and families you work with are great. Their mission is admirable. Many progressions have been made in that regard and it is joyful to be able to offer that to the families. Sending kids to summer camp is also a wonderful program they offer. However, the work-life balance can be grueling at times. Long hours with evening and weekend events tend to significantly diminish that favorable salary. Core programs are made to be "across the board", yet markets are NOT all suited to the same types of programs, making it extremely difficult to achieve your budget... a budget which is already inflated and unattainable due to pressure to "fudge". They offer great benefits, but don't expect a pay increase. They start you out at a good salary, but that may be all you end up making! Time off seems to replace pay. If true, realistic goals were set, the work environment would be much more tolerable and the company would not consistently miss their goals.
Unrealistic goals; no pay increases; pressure, pressure, pressure
