    Pros

    Average compensation, office personnel can balance their work-life and personal life; staff have a difficult time balancing work and personal life since there is such a high turn over rate. Personal growth is there if you chose to be a work horse. Great group of people to work with particularly the operations manager.

    Cons

    Leadership is ad hoc most times. Time-off policies deteriorated due to high turn over. The company stresses human values however local management does not seem to enforce values only if the client has mucho money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time overseeing program directors

    Pros

    If you like to work with mental health patients then you will feel really rewarded at this company.

    Cons

    Low. Salary for someone with a Bachelor's degree. I was interviewed and hired on the same day. The amount of paperwork is overwhelming. And you are supposed to clean up a former employees incomplete work..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to train your employees instead of once a week if you are lucky.

    I have been working at Resources For Human Development

    Pros

    In all honesty, I can not think of any pros.

    Cons

    Far too many layers of management. Very poor communication between top layers. Absolutely no autonomy given to Site Managers of programs. Extremely condescending to Senior managers, they talk down to you - very, very demeaning. They have you do a lot of work that is unnecessary - there simply are not enough hours in the week to accomplish it all, and then they want you to run up to the office constantly. They treat the residences like businesses, not like people's homes. They focus on inconsequential things and ignore the big picture - giving individuals a happy life and a home that they feel is their own. They just don't get the concept of Human Rights. Pay is far below normal standard in the field. In addition, they are very sneaky and can not be trusted. They have part time staff do work that managers should be doing, that they have neither the knowledge or experience to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers working in the houses a little respect. Don't treat houses like businesses, they are, first and foremost, people's homes!

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, very inclusive work environment, pay was decent, lots of great programs, relaxed culture. The company also has great benefits as far as insurance wise.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Management will stab you in the back. At the program I worked at I was fired for no reason at all, they said I was "not meeting expectations" which was a complete and total lie. They leave total autonomy to each program which is a bad thing because if you feel something was done wrong to you, you can't really go anywhere besides the program director. The program does not care about its employees at all. If something happens to you and your with a client, its all your fault no matter what. They don't even ask your side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. If you are a manager at corporate level, monitor your programs better and listen to the opinions of your employees at the local program level. Have a more caring attitude

    Pros

    Always hours to pick up.

    Cons

    Employees are over worked and under paid. People in the office sit at their computers all day and never go to any clients' homes to see firsthand what is going on.
    Sick time, holiday, and vacation time used to be easy to use but there are now sudden stipulations.
    Not enough pay to be a human punching bag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your pay and treat employees with respect. Then maybe you won't have problems with keeping employees.

    Pros

    Casual work environment, time off

    Cons

    If you want low turnover, mentoring, care or any material advancement this is the last place you want to work. Open space work environment-no offices- no cubicle or any resemblance of one the job you get hired for- your title- does not mean anything once you are in the door you are there's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your values, and banners they are good but only select people live by them.
