I have been working at Resources For Human Development full-time for more than a year

Pros

Inspiring service mission, generous Paid Time Off, work with many caring and hard working people, unique culture, creative thinking (in some areas)

Cons

Going through cost and program cutting phase, management actions don't always match values, many uncertainties, no match toward retirement saving

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-examine the corporation's economic model; consider seeking external consultation on future growth and direction

    Pros

    Lots of great and very talented people. Somehow RHD finds ways to attract great talent. Holding on to them though, a different story.

    Cons

    Young leaders are often discouraged and looked down upon as if good leaders have to have grey hair and 40+ years of experience in their fields. Management is anything but - mostly comprised of people who've been around forever; not really managers in any sense, just tenured. Lots of dysfunction in areas that tend to be worry-free for better managed companies, like payroll, HR, and IT. For a non-profit, they spend a lot of money settling lawsuits and disputes...probably more per capita than a for-profit of the same size, which is proof of general mismanagement. Benefits are a joke...between that and wage tax, combined with the fact that you'll earn less than you would in the same position at another company, it's east to understand why turnover is so high overall. It's why I left...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinvent yourselves, seriously. Given your size the struggles you have with basic business functions are proof of a need for total evolution. You're dug in and immovable; find younger leaders to help you reach your next level or you'll find yourself continuing to face the backsides of better managed competitors.

    I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I met some very dedicated and interesting people while doing an important service for those with disabilities.

    Cons

    There was a huge dissonance between the explicitly stated company values and the practices of management, which resulted in a discouraging environment of fear and suspicion and back-biting. Open communication and trust were purportedly important company values, but I have not worked for an organization which practiced these less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the company values be your guide rather than micromanaging based on personalities.
