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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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