    I worked at Muscular Dystrophy Association full-time

    Pros

    Knowing that you are working to improve the lives of people living with muscular dystrophy is very satisfying.

    Cons

    Depending on which office you work in and who your immediate supervisor is, MDC has some issues around negative work environment.

    Advice to Management

    MDC needs to invest in a qualified, experienced dedicated HR manager to address some of the issues around poor job satisfaction and high employee turnover.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association.

    Interview

    Several steps to the interview process involving call from HR and Skype calls with two area leads. Have to wait until the next group start date. Very long and drawn out process.
