    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.

    Beware! Narcissists in Upper Management.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    Pros

    Vacation benefits if you can actually take the time off.

    Cons

    Upper management are narcissists. There isn't any free thinking within this organization. Most employees I spoke with are very unhappy working here. You feel like your being micro managed constantly. Management has issues with trusting employees in the positions they placed them in. Absolutely no respect from management. You are not seen as an individual here. Most employees feel the threat of becoming laid off, pushed to leave, or fear termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a non profit organization, as such respect the employees that make it all happen. Let employees placed in the position be free thinkers. Find a new CFO, as I see this as the biggest threat to the mission of RHD.

    If you're ambitious enough to visit this site, you probably don't want to work here.

    Pros

    Laid back environment. Flex hours for many depending on your department. Vacation time cannot be beat. Management is relatively accessible. Not a bad place if you just want a "job" and not a career.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average, which is to be expected for non-profit. They talk about being a morally superior organization compared to other companies, but little is done to back that up. Management gives themselves astronomical raises in the midst of a financial crisis with no regard to the people supporting them. Expectations for employees are not clearly defined, which may be a product of no performance evaluations. Hiring managers are not trained in either interviewing or supervising; resulting in several incompetencies in these areas. There is no accountability for all of the failed hires that cost the company valuable $.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try so hard to be different - it's fine to differ from corporate America in certain respects, but it would be a better place if certain pieces of their handbook were incorporated.

    Great company, great idea, poor execution

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I love the work environment...open, fun, diverse, the type of experience you'd expect at a human services type non-profit but here it's done with a little more color and pop. Very, very good people working here, many of whom really care about what we do and take pride in their jobs. While not universal, I believe the workforce here is very estute and professional.

    Cons

    Senior management is set in their ways. 40 years of doing things the same way can be tough to overcome, but I think they need to face reality and modernize a bit. Reinventing the wheel never really works...it's round for a reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some younger and newer folks to the management team and take the advice of people outside your own circle. It is okay to change - especially if the changes lead to a stronger business.

    Former Employee - Program Manager
    Former Employee - Program Manager

    Pros

    The benefits are decent, the pay is average. Their group homes are nice and or have the potential to be nicer.

    Cons

    The hiring of family and friends within management and senior management is astonishing. You are not treated with any respect and humiliated in front of your peers. You can forget about voicing any ideas within the agency because if you do they will no longer be your own or shot down. It is a very disappointing company to work for with very low morale of staff and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother they wouldn't take it even if you beat them over the head with it. Treat people as you expect to be treated in return. Mr. Fishman should follow the advice and philosophy he gives in his book....The Experiment Isn't Working sweetheart.
