Pros

It's good to work for a company where they expect a lot, push you to grow, and constantly challenge you. For me, one of the most motivating factors is seeing how hard my boss works and how much effort he puts in.
The company does little things to help make it a positive work place, such as breakfast on Fridays, lunches at the end of busy months, and random events.
Overall, it is a great place to work and grow.

Cons

Honestly, the biggest downside is negative people on sites like this. The only way I can think to explain it is through a food analogy. When you have a good dinner somewhere, you just enjoy it and move on. Whereas, if you have a horrid experience, you tell everyone and then you tell their sisters. You make sure everyone knows. I think that's what is happening here. Obviously not everyone will fit in the working environment, and so there are bound to be people who are disgruntled.
Those people who are happy and who voted Resource Action Programs a finalist for the best places to work are clearly doing well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to management: get to know people. Make sure you listen to and acknowledge the people in the company. Everyone has a value to the work flow of the company and everyone has ideas and something to contribute.

    Pros

    Working with this company, I have not only learned a great deal, have been given the opportunity for growth and upward mobility, but I have also grown as a person. There is no unfair treatment and managment does not rule by fear and threats. They do, however, expect their employees to be professional. This includes coming into work on time, staying until the job is finished, appropriate work attire and it's not too much to ask for100% job performance. All of this is included in the handbook that is handed out in the beginning of employment. In this down economy, how many employers sponsor annual golf tourneys, pay for basketball teams, softball teams, pays for family outings such as Reno Aces games, Wolf Pack games, picnics, and hikes? Not to mention paid time off from Christmas through New Years on top of your vacation and sick leave?

    Cons

    The only cons about working here are having to work with ungrateful co-workers. Maybe all of the negative reviewers, will find a more rewarding career in burger flipping where hard work and effort are not necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring employees that want to work and will give 100% to the company, instead of those that obviously don't care and are only working for a paycheck...

    I worked at Resource Action Programs

    Pros

    There are a select few competent and friendly employees, but they have given up on attempting to create efficiencies in the workflow and improve materials this company creates. Management is so resistant to change that improvements are impossible. The only good thing I can say about Resource Action Programs is that since they don't provide utensils or paper plates, it makes every lunchtime an adventure if you bring food from home.

    Cons

    The type of shoes you wear is more important than any skill you bring to the table. Change is met with resistance. Employees are ruled by threats and fear from management. You might get fired for wearing a v-neck that resembles a t-shirt in any way on casual Friday. Employees who have been with the company for any length of time are indifferent after years of being unappreciated, overworked and looked down upon. Extremely high turnover. Depressing work environment. The company does not care about education, even though they create educational materials. Materials are quickly pushed through and sent out to teachers and students with glaring typos because there is no reliable proofing process put into place across all teams. There is also no project management or tracking on the design side of projects. Everything is a rush - and you WILL have to do whatever it takes to get it done, even if that means working a 14 hour day - dinner will not be provided, by the way. The company does not seem to concern themselves with customer service, being a leader in their industry or the well-being of their employees. Avoid working here at all costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with the people you hire and stop misrepresenting positions to potential employees. It's their life you are playing with. For example, if someone leaves a job for the perks you advertise, and then you don't come through - consider how that employee will feel after realizing their job is nothing like what you said it would be. Don't promise them the things they are looking for in a job if you are unwilling to provide those things. Also, the multitude of strict rules makes your employees feel like cattle instead of human beings. Treat people like people. Let them utilize the skills you hired them for....or what you told them you hired them for, anyway. Start listening to your employees who do happen to know what they're talking about. Create an environment which rewards forward thinking and enthusiasm towards improving (or starting) processes that will create efficiency and happiness in the workplace. Certain people work harder, faster and better when given an opportunity to put themselves into the project and be heard for their innovative ideas and realistic concerns.
