I previously worked for the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter for three years. I left the organization due to management and poor usage of program funds. The organization has since cut their funding of the NICU program and cannot provide detailed explanations of where the money is going. When I worked there management couldn't even tell it's employees where the money is going.

Everything in the Missouri Chapter is politically driven and they struggle retaining employees because of the mis-management of funds. They spend money on lavish "gifts" for "patrons" and most of their events, especially their Signature Chefs Event, isn't profitable due to how much they spend on the event space itself.

Their mission is a great mission, if they actually funded it. There are many other foundations that help premature babies and if I were a donor I would research those foundations and donate to them.

I worked at the March of Dimes for 4 years at the Arkansas Chapter. The management there is horrible from the top down. They did nothing but lie and manipulate. I have never in my life witnessed so much drama in an office. There is no way they were about the mission it was about manipulating and getting people fired to save themselves. It is really odd to me that the two people working in the office now have not been able to bring any money into that place. She has not hit budget at any of her events in the past year that she has worked there, but somehow she makes lies to the management and blames others for things and gets them fired, but they are not smart enough to see that she is taking the attention off of herself because she is not capable of doing her job. As an employee I heard our new State Director talking bad about me to her manager and telling her lies. She was literally there for 3 weeks and never once tried to get to know me or even ask what my job duties were. It was so aggravating that they took a job from me that I loved. Their goal was to get me fired for absolutely no reason. This organization is by far the worst place to work for. It is really unfortunate because the mission is great, but Arkansas is not even capable to raise enough money let alone pay for their salaries. If they want to be profitable they need to fire the two girls that are higher up and just start with new staff. It was sad to see two people run off 3 people within a few months. Within the past 7 years there have been so much turnover at that Chapter- around 30 people. How weird is it that they don't think something is strange about this? The last year working there was the worst experience, and just from everything that I have seen I wouldn't recommend anyone to work for this organization or even donate to it until they get their stuff together. Extremely disappointed.

Worst place I have ever worked in my entire life...I can attest to misuse of donated funds, improper behavior by management, and absolute disregard for all paid staff members and volunteers. Not only did this happen at corporate in White Plains, NY, but also in the chapter in North Carolina.
