    Pros

    Services are highly professional & critically needed. Service protocols are well defined specific to their mission to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations. Management employees seemed dedicated and interested to ensure work is understood. To that end, training was thorough so that new employees will be capable of answering crisis calls and responding to most required interventions.
    Many RHD employees are devoted, loyal, compassionate and committed to their work.

    Cons

    Did not receive information on how to process paid time for work performed. Actually worked 4 months without being paid. Level of managements concerns regarding paid time due did not seem to be a priority until I resigned.
    RHD employees are not trained to deal with substance abuse. During training, I was told that crisis calls involving substance abuse disqualified eligibility for RHD crisis services.

    Advice to Management

    Management is needed. Some employees considered managers lacked maturity and critical people skills. I observed managers who seemed to avoid contact with new employees until they had a reason to correct the new employee about work performance. Not all seemed to be "guarded" (for lack of a better description), but my training and experiences in management prioritized the skill to engage with all employees, especially new employees.

    Pros

    Values driven, gives you the opportunity to succeed, autonomy, great people

    Cons

    No room for advancement, benefits are severely lacking, better to look good than to be good, little to no contact with superior,

    Advice to Management

    Growth is important, but managed growth would be better. Units that are succeeding are dragged down by those that aren't. It's too easy for certain personalities to pull the wool over managements eyes.

    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 Management

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

    Good people to work with, pay was decent along with benefits.

    Lack of leadership, to much Politics in upper management.

    Have more meetings with your lower level employees.

    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 Management

    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!

  9. Love the company philosophy, structure, & training!

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
