    Pros

    The company does good work in behavioral health and is making a difference in many peoples lives. Excellent vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Salary is low but this is typical in non-profits. Newer managers do not hold the company values as dearly as long time employees which can lead to a stressful work environment and overall unhappiness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that new employees know and live the RHD values better.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits all around, the company follows a set of values which I saw carried out within the program I worked for, employees are encouraged to voice their opinions and ideas, if there is a conflict there are people within the company who serve as mediators to help resolve the issue, flexible and freedom in scheduling appointments with clients and taking time off, employer provides and encourages employees to gain more training, uses liberal-based approaches, company is continuing to grow and expand, rated as one of the best companies to work for in Philly, and most of all, you see the impact and changes these programs have had in increasing the overall quality of life in the people who are being served!!

    Cons

    Very disorganized at times, sharing office space makes it difficult for ensuring confidentiality with clients, saw a lot of inept people hired and fired who were given multiple chances of proving themselves and changing when they should have probably been fired from the gecko, inefficient computer program for documenting notes/plans (although I think it may have changed by now), boundaries set between staff and clients were questionable at times

    Pros

    The people are amazing! Ability to move around.

    Cons

    There are many agencies under RHD and not all of them run as stable as the RHD values say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For LMCS, a agency under RHD, listen to your employees. We are in the front lines and have a great concept of what will help it work better!

    Pros

    Lack of micro-management, empowered, training, opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    I have witnessed some HUB (department) directors with too much power firing people because they just don't 'like' them. Many HUBs have major management drama, and I was lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have honest conversations with lower-ranked employees and REALLY listen to their concerns as to how they are not being supported & the drama from their directors.

    Pros

    Mostly patient/consumer centered and has a lot of great employees

    Cons

    A few people at the regional level tend to run the company with personal ambitions which includes witch hunting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit programs and talk to the staff. Do surprise visits and interview staff away from the local managements especially in the NE region. The place is falling apart.

    Pros

    Good supervision at many of their locations, important population to work with, strong behavioral theory, mini classes for any one.

    Lots of traveling, individual site are fairly unorganized, not much recognition for quality work, many opportunities for bad work to get unnoticed.

    More specific an individualized supervision, recognize your employees' strengths and weaknesses by actually talking with them. Help train skills please.

    I have been working at Resources For Human Development

    Pros

    Great communication throughout the organization. This is an open environment where there is great adherence to the values. In other organizations there is a stark disconnect between the work environment and the values of the corporation.
    Management and employees believe in the values, and this translates into true quality services being rendered by the staff. Likewise, employee morale is always high.

    Cons

    Benefits are not very comprhensive. There is no retirement match, and there is no tuition reimbursement etc. A young person who still needs to grow professionally, may find it difficult to map out a course of professional growth. There is not a clear path to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide a forum for open communication. Find creative ways to improve on benefits.
