Pros

The people are wonderful to work with, excellent team environment, collaborative. Flexible schedule. Good work/life balance. Some chances of advancement, depending on your position. Company is open to new ideas and suggestions from employees, creativity is encouraged. Open culture, everyone is approachable.

Cons

Upper management clings to an outdated business model in a show of allegiance to the founder and previous CEO, much to the detriment of the advancement of the company. They do not learn from their financial mistakes. Money is wasted hand over fist on projects that are poorly planned and executed, then more money is wasted trying to make it right. They do not know when to let go of really expensive projects, cut their losses, and find something else. Rampant backdoor politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Integrate standard business practices, don't be afraid of change, some centralization is necessary to keep control of spending and to keep things in line, as well as protecting the company and its assets.

    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

    Great vacation, holiday and sick time benefits. Casual environment. The actual "product" -- helping those in need -- is heartfelt by staff at all levels.

    Cons

    The highest turnover of any place I've worked says it all. Great places to work don't have high turnover.

    Its slogans have more to do with self praise than the mission of helping those in need. It is a wonder management doesn't suffer from repetitive stress injuries from patting itself on the back so frequently.

    This company never sees outside itself and is incapable of learning from the mistakes of others and doomed to repeat them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire. Let someone with sound business sense, and modern ideas bring this company in line with current times and its current size.
