I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time (less than an year)

Pros

i like their mission, helping people who are hurting, families in distress, ex-convicts

Cons

the IT department lacks a customer service focus. they are severely understaffed. the idea of 'challenge authority' (or something like that in their list of value statements) does not work in the IT world since you need standards to minimize support headaches.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

increase IT staff so they can be more responsive and less strain on their resources

    I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generous time off, casual atmosphere, reasonable salary, opportunity for continuing education and enrichment. Employees genuinely care about clients and mission.

    Cons

    Management does not follow written policies. They make a big deal about "values", but don't follow them. Management is very self-congratulatory, plays favorites, and has little clue about what's going on in the programs or with lower-level, front-line employees. Board is not involved at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the policies you've written. Network to see how other NPOs do their work and run their organizations. Listen to your employees. Treat everyone equally.

    I have been working at Resources For Human Development part-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
