    Former Employee - Development in Saint Louis, MO (US)

    I worked at National Multiple Sclerosis Society full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were for the most part amazing. Staff is dedicated and willing to help each other whenever possible. Mission of organization is worthwhile. Health benefits were great in order to offset low salaries. Flexible with schedule and good PTO.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. No support or direction from senior leadership. Chapter has laid off 50% of staff since Sept. 2013. Little to no professional development opportunities were available to advance skills or learn new things. Development staff was expected to be available at a moments notice to attend recruitment events, etc. that had little or no impact on event recruitment or fundraising. Senior leadership seems to have no idea what they are doing and there was no communication about what was going on with the Chapter. There were many talks of "changing how we do business" with no processes or plans for how changes would be implemented or executed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the staff and offer solutions instead of vague ideas for change. Share good and bad news so everyone knows where things stand.

    Communications Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

    Interview Details

    The HR manager contacted me for a phone interview. I told her I lived out of the country, and the first question she asked me was, "Do you expect us to relocate you? Because we don't do that." Kind of a weird start to an interview if you ask me. She then went on to ask about 10 behavioral questions, such as "How do you like to communicate with your manager?" "What is your presentation style?" "Tell me about a time when you didn't communicate well." "What types of media database systems have you used?" "Tell me about a piece you wrote that persuaded someone." "How do you prioritize?"

    Basically they were weeding people out, but I wasn't asked at all about my previous experience or what direct skills I could bring to the position.
