Could be a great company...could be

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

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

ConsYoung 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 Senior ManagementReinvent 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
