March of Dimes Foundation
October 14, 2012

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.
