    I worked at National Kidney Foundation full-time (less than an 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.
