Pros

Great atmosphere. Good place to get your feet wet if wanting to teach adults with developmental delays.

Cons

Unstable working environment and severe mismanagement.
Lack of tentative education plans and curriculum development for teaching artists.
Unstructured in house training.
Lack of direct care staff to help participants in program.
Lack of assisted technology and adaptive devises for severely disabled participants.
No model program or base criteria set for teaching artist and support staff.
No self-defense training required before beginning working on the floor (must be scheduled with RHD).
Senior director lacks:
     • managerial skills necessary for program success;
     • knowledge of and ability to apply facility philosophy, principles & technology;
     • does not have basic budgeting principles;
     • in the ability to build and lead cohesive, successful team(s);
     • communication skills with employees (verbal and written)

Advice to Management

Have a model education plan in place when implementing an art based program that includes a wide array of developmentally delayed individuals. Have strategies to help participants in program who are severely disabled and blind. Very limited choices.

    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

    The stated values of the company are good. The initial compensation and benefits are fair, and there are some good people working there. A good cultural cross-section of people.

    Cons

    The values that were promoted were not practiced. Heavy handed upper management. There seemed to be quite a bit of office politicking and petty disagreements that escalated unnecessarily.

    Advice to Management

    Try to look at everything objectively. Reward those who do this work for the right reasons.
