    I worked at National Kidney Foundation

    Pros

    Great employees in the lower levels, dynamic work environment that puts you in contact with many influential people in the medical field

    Cons

    By the time i left i could not tell where most of the money being fundraised was going. I felt like a lot of the good we were doing when i started had been done away with in favor of constant fundraising

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus the foundation on helping out those with kidney disease. Most importantly bring back programs like the US Transplant Games

    I worked at National Kidney Foundation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great lesson in learning what to really ask about the internals of a company when interviewing.

    Cons

    This was the worst position I have ever had. The inteview process is long and drawn-out. MAJOR internal issues, most staff have favorites that get away with things. They will fire you on the spot, without any notice. Very unorganized company. All of the money currently being raised/donated is going to paying off corporate loans to stay afloat. Not even worth considering- you will never move-up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management and a national theme that makes sense. Learn from other non-profits, because clearly something is very wrong.
