What Employees Say
I worked at St. Baldrick's Foundation full-time for less than a year
The benefits are great and some of the coworkers I worked with are very passionate about the mission. Great company events that encourage bonding amongst the departments. Location was great too.... It was also inspiring to meet and interact with volunteers and families, who love to share their motivations to cure childhood cancers. A good place to get your start in the nonprofit industry; you get to learn of skillsets outside your job title.
Pay is lower than standard but take into consideration that you will be working for a nonprofit. As far as roles, depending on your department, it's difficult to get promotions or certain perks.... Unfortunately, St. Baldrick's is experiencing turnover due to changes that began in the fall of 2018. Though I got a lot of experience out of working with the company, some things need to be addressed. First, the upper management needs to learn how to value their employees, especially in the entry-level/associate positions. A suggestion is learning everyone's roles (despite the small size of the company, there have been many times a colleague/upper management was clueless to what an employee was responsible for). Second, I hope that all employees' concerns and ideas are heard. It's one thing to implement ideas from upper management's favorites, but there should be more transparent conversations about the pros and cons of potential ideas instead of shifting blame after campaigns fail to meet expectations. Third, there is a disconnect and miscommunication among the board members, management, and departments. In my time at St. Baldrick's, I ran into issues that could are easily solved, but even with the number of meetings for one campaign, an unmentioned but approved last-minute change(s) occurs without room to agree or disagree.
Advice to Management
Transparency to volunteers and donors are A+, but that needs to happen internally as well.
